American doctors treat a patient liberated from Penig.
"KY64360. Censor No. 407919. Scherman/Pool/Life/F. Keystone 490041."
Caption on back of photograph reads: "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: American doctors attend to a bed case, very weak, with broomstick legs, who will probably die."
