Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War

The Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War was signed on July 27, 1929.  It states that prisoners of war are prisoners of the Power which holds them and not prisoners of the unit which takes their surrender.  Further, the convention upholds the right to honor and respect prisoners of war, and holds that women shall be treated with all the regard due to their sex and that prisoners of a similar category must be treated equally.
