Consists of a roll of photographic negatives of images of the "death train" from which concentration camp prisoners from Bergen-Belsen were liberated near Farsleben (near Magdeburg, Germany) in April 1945. The prisoners had been placed on the train and departed Bergen-Belsen prior to the camp's liberation though the train had no intended destination. The images were taken and acquired immediately by George Gross, who was part of the 743rd Tank Battalion which secured the train while others in the unit sought provisions for the newly liberated prisoners.
