Watercolor of Berezovka POW camp, Siberia, c. 1916
Ethel von Heidenstam was presented with this watercolor of Berezovka POW camp in Siberia by a German POW who painted it for her. Ethel wrote on the back of the frame:
"Fånglager Beresoffka söder om Irkutsk härifrån startade jag resan till Maimachui vid gränsen." (The Berezovka prison camp south of Irkutsk from where I started my
journey to Maimachui on the border.)
