During the First World War, 8 million soldiers fighting on the front and 2 million civilians,
mainly those living abroad in enemy countries or areas under enemy occupation, were
taken prisoner and interned in camps for several years.

On 21 August 1914, the ICRC established the International Prisoners-of-War Agency
in Geneva, to which the warring States submitted, more or less regularly, lists of prisoners.
The Agency received 400,000 pages of documents: lists of prisoners’ names and records
of capture, of transfers between camps and of deaths in detention.
