This is general view of the city of Afion Karahissar where the Turks incarcerated a number of Allied POW's. The Armenian church is the large two-story building next to the large white house in the middle of the photograph. The Turks incarcerated Allied prisoners in two separate compounds at Afion Karahissar: a lower camp in the city and the upper camp at the foot of the mountain.
