Title supplied by cataloger.
"Censor No.407876. Scherman/Life/Pool/F. Keystone 49CO57."
Caption on back of photograph reads: "Another concentration camp: At Penig Jewish women from Budapest found starving. 'Corpses still alive and walking around.' This is how our cameraman describes 68 women, all Jewish, all from Budapest, mostly from cultured families there, who were mercilessly starved and worked to death in a German concentration camp at Penig. When Americans of the 3rd Army found them, they immediately took over a Luftwaffe hospital and made the personnel to take care of these miserable skeletons until they recover. Keystone photo shows: The divisional surgeon talks to one of the Jewish women, now aas comfortable as possible in nearby Luftwaffe hospital."
