25 Vintage Photographs Capture Life of the Prison Camp at Hald in Jutland in 1917

Jutland, known anciently as the Cimbric or Cimbrian Peninsula, is a peninsula of Northern Europe that forms the continental portion of Denmark and part of northern Germany. The names are derived from the Jutes and the Cimbri, respectively.

Life of the prison camp at Hald in Jutland in 1917

As with the rest of Denmark, Jutland's terrain is flat, with a slightly elevated ridge down the central parts and relatively hilly terrains in the east. West Jutland is characterised by open lands, heaths, plains and peat bogs, while East Jutland is more fertile with lakes and lush forests. Southwest Jutland is characterised by the Wadden Sea, a large unique international coastal region stretching through Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands.

The prison camp at Hald was built in western Hald Ege in Central Jutland in 1917 by the Red Cross, which needed a hospital camp for sick German and Austro-Hungarian prisoners of war from Russian captivity.

These amazing photos from The Film Museum captured life of the prison camp at Hald in Jutland in 1917.
