Notes

Abstract:
Caption on back of photograph reads: "THE NAZIS BURN THE LIVING. When troops of the Ninth U.S. Army reached Gardelegen, Germany, they found the still-smoldering bodies of more than 1,000 political prisoners whom the Nazis had forced into a fuel-soaked barn and burned to death. A mass of human flesh was smoking when American troops arrived on the scene and discovered from fugitives of the concentration camp that the atrocity had been committed by German troops and Luftwaffe personnel from a nearby airfield. Residents of the town of Gardelegen, 27 miles north west of Magdoburg, were immediately compelled by U.S. officers to disinter approximately 700 partially buried dead and to bury all the charred victims. THIS PHOTO SHOWS: Ninth U.S. Army soldiers look grimly upon the partially burned bodies of victims who attempted escape through a barn door only to be machine-gunned to death by waiting Nazis."
