Notes

Abstract:
Caption on back of photograph reads: "HUNGARIAN WOMEN LIBERATED FROM NAZI CAMP. A group of cultured Hungarian women, mostly doctors, artists, musicians and scholars, imprisoned by the Nazis at a concentration camp near Penig, Germany, have been liberated by troops of the 76th Division, Third U.S. Army. Too ill to move, they were left behind when the Germans fled from rapidly advancing American units. The rest of the inmates of the camp were marched to areas behind the shrinking German lines. All had been political prisoners for at least five months and those abandoned were found to be suffering from starvation, typhus, diphtheria and tuberculosis. They [page torn] were often beaten by their young, uniform [page torn] girl guards, who fed them a meager, insufficient diet of cabbage roots and soup made of grass. These portrait studies were made April 17, 1945, after their liberation by the Third Army soldiers. Penig is 30 miles southeast of Leipzig. THIS PHOTO SHOWS: This Hungarian woman, a political prisoner, was liberated from the Nazi concentration camp at Penig, Germany."
