It served as the center for questioning prisoners of war, Russian Air Force members. The task of the investigators was to get from the prisoners information which would be useful in the battle against the Russian Air Force, and also to make use of the enemy aviation infrastructure captured by Wermacht. In case of Air Force prisoners from western allied countries dulag lufts were such camps. However, the distance from the camp to the front line was an impediment for the investigators.
