Notes

Abstract:
Caption on back of photograph reads: "GERMAN CIVILIANS BURY VICTIMS OF NAZI SADISM. Civilians of Gardelegen, Germany, were forced to bury the victims of the massacre in which approximately 1,000 political prisoners of the Nazis were locked in a barn which was then set afire. The prisoners either died from burns or were mowed down with machine guns as they attempted to break out of the blazing structure. Ninth U.S. Army officers compelled the town mayor to produce a citizen for each of the victims killed by Nazi troops and Luftwaffe personnel from an adjacent airfield. Each citizen was made to dig a grave for one victim and wrap the burned body in a shroud for proper burial. In addition, the German citizen's name will appear on the gravestone beneath that of the victim. He will be responsible for the care of the grave during his lifetime and must provide for it to be carried on after his death by another German. THIS PHOTO SHOWS: The charred bodies of victims of Nazi brutality lie waiting for their reburial by civilians nearby Gardelegen, Germany."
