The team of the German submarine U-58, at the gates of the camp of prisoners of war Fort McPherson, USA 1917

On November 17, 1917, the submarine Kayzerlikhmarine U-58 was attacked by American destroyers off the southern coast of Britain, and after being damaged it was forced to surface and surrender. The entire team, with the exception of the two killed in the attack, was brought to the United States and placed in Fort McPherson prisoners of war camp.
The photo captures the moment the U-58 team arrives at the camp.
What life was waiting for them in MacPherson, in the photo below.

New arrivals are greeted by the inhabitants of the camp - also German sailors. True, the latter, as can be understood from the photo below, were not captured, but were interned from German auxiliary cruisers, who were forced to shelter from the British in American ports when the USA was still neutral.

I think the ship models, like the boxes with the soldiers, were made for sale.

Even a monkey is there. Maybe with some of the interned cruisers.
