Transcription"German POWs in Moorhead roofing a building on the Hank Peterson farm in 1944. An American guard stands in the upper right. Hong reported in 1944 that 'all the men are housed together in a large building formerly used as a warehouse. It is rather dimly lighted, but it is at the same time cool on hot days.'" - Citation with similar image published in Swords Into Plowshares, Minnesota's POW Camps during World War II, by Dean B.
