that proved facts were untrue and
this caused the German government

have died of typhoid.
Many prisoners, the newspaper
says, became insane. One Instance
is cited of 2." 0 insane prisoners who,
the Norddeutsche Allgenieine Zeitung
says, were flogged and driven into a
room large enough for only 100, con-
taining no bedding, after which the
doors and windows were boarded.
"They were left there twenty-six
hours without food or water." the
account goes on "when the room was

barbarous that some Russian soldiers
have refused to carry them out. Th:
