Under the supervision of American soldiers, German civilians from Nammering are forced to view the corpses of prisoners exhumed from a mass grave near the town. The victims were shot by the SS during an evacuation transport from Buchenwald to Dachau. The civilians were made to walk barefooted so that they could feel the sometimes blood-wet mud on their skin. by berta

The Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. Liberated 4/15/45 by the British. 70,000 prisoners died there. 35,000 of typhus in the first few months of 1945, including Anne Frank. Soldiers found 53,000 inmates - most acutely sick and starving. The BBC reported,"...A mother, driven mad, screamed at a British sentry to give her milk for her child, and thrust the tiny mite into his arms, then ran off, crying terribly. He opened the bundle and found the baby had been dead for days." www.worldwar2tours.com by debra

Grim-faced GIs contemplate a pile of dead bodies at the Buchenwald concentration camp in 1945. Scenes like this were repeated throughout Germany, with some GIs taking things into their own hands and summarily shooting SS guards. These incidents were (reluctantly) investigated by command without any serious penalties for those involved (my reaction would have been similar to the GIs meeting such scenes). by victoria

Reality check. A German girl is overcome as she is forced to walk through and around the exhumed bodies of some 800 slave workers that the SS guards near Namering, Germany murdered. The US Army who liberated the camp laid them out so that the townspeople, who feverishly denied knowledge of the camp, could view the work of their Nazi leaders. # world war 2 # history #nazis #germany by victoria

An immensely powerful photo showing a Concentration camp inmate confronting a camp guard.  The look on the guard's face shows not remorse, but the meekness of a bully brought to judgement.  During the liberation of the camps, Allied troops occasionally turned their backs as inmates beat their former guards to death with anything at hand. by jayne
