    Physical Details

    Physical Description
    Black and white poster commemorating the liberation of German concentration camps. At the top center, black text is against a white background which is surrounded by 10 captioned photographs in 3 rows. The top row has 2 photos, from left; an emaciated male prisoner stands in front of others lying in their bunks and a crematory with a long chimney and a group of people walking beside it. The middle row shows a photograph of a diorama depicting prisoners working in the camp among several tents, a barred and chain linked gate with a sign in German reading: JEDEM DAS SEINE [each his own], the entrance to the camp, and a procession of people lead by a man with a large horizontally stripped flag at the 1954 Ceremony of remembrance. The bottom row shows a dead man in his striped uniform lying among other corpses, a lampshade made from human skin featuring a tattoo of a winged female, a decapitated mummified head with a description card and the widow’s procession at the Ceremony of Remembrance. On the bottom right is the logo for FIR (International Federation of Resistance Fighters), an inverted cone with FIR on the surface and a fire burning from the base. White paper with text has been adhered to 3 of the captions, coving the print that was there. There is a small hole in the center and small vertical tears on the bottom edge. The top edge has a vertical tear on the left and the bottom edge has several small creases.
