The [treaty of Lausanne](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Lausanne) was a treaty between the proxies of the Allies and Turkey, which ended the[ Turkish War of Independence](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_War_of_Independence). The wooden mosque in the background was built for the [“Halbmondlager”](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halbmondlager) (Half Moon Camp), a World War I prisoner of war camp for Muslim prisoners. The camp tried to convince its prisoners to fight against the Allies. The mosque would be demolished a couple years after this photo was taken, due to disrepair.
