No caption but most 
likely Austrian atrocities
in Serbia.

6 French soldiers(?) hanging
on a make-shift scaffold. One mans uni-
form can be clearly seen, the others appear
to be in civilian dress and were presumably
hung as spies because of it.

Note: The hangings mentioned on this page are, in some cases, not the "usual" hangings. The victims were suspended and then garotted from behind. A far more painful , lingering and cruel death. This method of execution is one very real reason why these were true atrocities against the Serbs and Croats !!
