German oven murders at Natweiler Camp : former guards on trial in Wuppertal Zoo.
Caption on back of photograph reads: "German Oven Murders At Natweiler Camp: Former Guards On Trial At Wuppertal Zoo. The trial of ten German, former guards at Natweiler Camp in Alsace, on a charge of burning alive four British service women captured after parachuting into France on a special mission, took place in the Zoological Garden Hall in Wuppertal Germany. In adjacent buildings other beasts were housed, perhaps more human than the Nazis in the dock. It is alleged that the four women, members of the W.A.F. and F.A.N.Y. were taken into a room adjoining the camp crematorium, where they were given an injection of a drug before being placed still alive and groaning (One even able to struggle with the executioner) in specially heated ovens. Photo shows: General view of the German defendants in the dock at the zoo, Wuppertal, Germany: right to left Wolfgang Zeuss; Peter Straub (the executioner); Emil Maier; Magnus Wachner; Fritz Hartjenstein (Cam Commandant); Franz Berg (Straub's assistant); Werner Rohde (Medical Officer); Emil Bruettel; and Kurt Aus dem Bruach (Camp dentist who gave the injection.)."
