Abstract:
Caption on back of photograph reads: "THIRD U.S. ARMY EXPOSES HORROR OF BUCHENWALD CAMP. The Buchenwald concentration camp, on a small hill about four miles outside Weimar, was captured April 13, 1945, by troops of the Third U.S. Army. Approximately 21,000 inmates--Russian, Polish, French, Italian, and Czechoslovakian--were liberated. They were the living dead. Some clustered weakly about the first Americans to enter the camp and died as they spoke. Children had convict numbers tatooed sic on their stick-like arms. In 10 years, more than 70,000 persons were starved and butchered in this camp. A crematorium was operated until the Germans ran out of coal, then the bodies were stacked up in two rows like cords of wood. One of the barracks where prisoners were quartered until they died had once stabled 80 horses. The Germans put 1,200 men in it, five to a bunk. Every 24 hours, prisoners received a small piece of brown bread, a little margarine and one scant portion of stew. THIS PHOTO SHOWS: Children liberated from the Buchenwald concentration camp lead a line of older prisoners still strong enough to walk from the camp to a U.S. Army medical station for treatment."
