Stalag 18A (Stalag XVIIIA) — German POW camp during World War II near Wolfsberg, Austria. The camp contained about 30,000 people., 10,000 British and 20,000 Russian. Russian were isolated in a separate area, and do not interfere with other prisoners. In the English part of the ethnic English had only half, about 40% — the Australians, the rest — the Canadians, New Zealanders (including 320 indigenous Maori), and other natives of the colonies. Of the other nations in the camp were the French, downed American pilots, well, in general, a full international.
Feature Stalag 18A was a liberal attitude of the administration to the presence of the British cameras (on Russian is not extended). Thanks to what came to us an impressive archive of photographs of life in the camp, made from the inside, ie people who were sitting in it.

So that in some there is no question that was at stake in the Anglo-Saxons and the Soviet people in the war.
