Dangerous and humiliating labour
    ARTICLE 52

    Unless he be a volunteer, no prisoner of war maybe employed on labour which is of an unhealthy or dangerous nature.
    No prisoner of war shall be assigned to labour which would be looked upon as humiliating for a member of the Detaining Power's own forces.
    The removal of mines or similar devices shall be considered as dangerous labour.
