Charred remains of the Landsberg Concetration Camp.
Title supplied by cataloger.
Caption on front of photograph reads: "28 April 1945. Landsberg atrocity; 7th U.S. Army troops enter the smoking ruins of the Landsberg concentration camp. Before American forces captured the camp, German guards locked their prisoners in the wooden huts and set fire to them. Some burned to death in the buildings, others found strength to crawl out and die in the streets. Most prisoners were naked, but some had remnants of clothing on their charred bodies."
