Publication | Accession Number: 2012.71.2.12

Print reproduction of a drawing created by Henry Gayot, a prisoner in Natzweiler-Struthof concentration camp, depicting a long line of men in striped prison uniforms walking uphill; a guard is pointing his pistol at a fallen inmate and another guard is shoving a man with his rifle butt. Gayot, a member of the French resistance in German occupied France, was deported by the Germans to Struthof in 1943. The main camp was evacuated in September 1944 because of the advance of Allied Forces. The prisoners were sent to concentration camps in Germany. Gayot may have been sent to Dachau and liberated during a forced march in May 1945.
