An Agreement Concerning The Treatment Of Prisoners Of War

Articles 5 and 6 cover what can and cannot be done to a prisoner during capture. Upon request, prisoners are required to indicate their real name and rank, unless they are too ill to comply, but are not forced to provide more information. The personal possessions of prisoners, with the exception of weapons and horses, shall not be taken from them. Belligerents must ensure that prisoners of war who die in captivity are honorably buried and that graves bear all necessary information, are respected and properly maintained. Ordinances, orders, notices and proclamations of all kinds shall be communicated to prisoners of war in a language which they understand. The same principle applies to examinations. the sick and injured who, according to the doctor, are unlikely to recover in a year, their condition requiring treatment and their physical or mental fitness seem to have significantly decreased; To ensure service in officers` camps, soldiers of the same army, prisoners of war and speaking if possible the same language, shall be assigned in sufficient numbers, taking into account the rank of officers and persons with equivalent status.. . . .
