Notes

Abstract:
Caption on front of photograph reads: "28 April 1945. Landsberg atrocity; the emaciated bodies of victims of German cruelty at Landsberg prison. Before retreating in the face of the 7th Army attack, guards locked the Jewish prisoners in their huts and then told them they would be shot if they came out. Then the buildings were set on fire. Some burned to death in their huts. Others found strength to break down the doors and crawl out to die in the streets. Most prisoners were naked, some had remnants of clothing on their bodies. View of the prison camp showing the charred remains of the burned huts in the foreground."
