Axis POWs in Cairo, 1941
Here we see a column of Axis POWs marching through Cairo, after being captured during Operation Crusader. Their route takes them through the historical heart of the city. On the right is part of the 14th century mosque of Sultan Hassan. In front are the walls of Saladin's Citadel. In the background is the Mohammad Ali Mosque, built between 1830 and 1848.
