An elevated view of Fort 15, Stalag XXa, showing the drawbridge and the moat around the camp. This German prisoner of war (POW) and internment camp was a series of semi underground forts built in the 1880s on the Vistula River. Prisoners included men of the 2/5th Australian General Hospital (AGH) who were captured in Greece after they were ordered to remain behind to treat wounded allied POWs following the evacuation.
