Prisoners wash and disinfect clothing under the supervision of an Austrian non-commissioned officer in the laundry at Wieselburg. This was a new facility and featured hot water treatment of POW clothing. The elimination of vermin reduced the outbreak of epidemics and improved the general health of prison camps.
