Title

British prisoners of war escaping from the Torviscosa camp are helped by civilians

Description

A girl with a bag brings supplies to a man in uniform who is walking toward her with outstretched hands. In a sparse wood, other servicemen are visible, dispersed amongst the trees under makeshift tents. A second girl is on the right. Meat on a spit is roasting on a campfire in the bottom right corner.

Label reads “88”; signed by the author; caption reads “Settembre 1943. Prigionieri inglesi fuggiaschi dal campo di concentramento di Torviscosa UD in seguito all’armistizio, passano le loro notti sotto improvvisate tende, per tema di rastrellamenti tedeschi. Nel bosco di Corgnolo amorevolmente riforniti di viveri, dal gran cuore delle popolazioni locali.”
