    Survivors look on as a group of American soliders and members of the press inspect a barracks in Dachau.
    Survivors look on as a group of American soliders and members of the press inspect a barracks in Dachau.

Original caption reads: " Hitler and His Works.  The United Nations' occupation of German territory has brought to light evidence of the extent of Hitler's crimes.  Stark facts, exposing murder, brutality, depravity and barbarism have been unfolded to an almost unbelievable extent as concentration camps liberated by the Allies disclose the true picture of the Hitler regime.  

This photo shows: M.E. Walker, editor of the Houston (Texas) Chronicle, passes down an aisle flanked with emaciated humans as he inspects the foul living conditions of the Dachau concentration camp, where more than 32,000 prisoners were liberated by the Seventh U.S. Army.  Prisoners crowd around the editor, member of a group of Allied journalists investigating German atrocities, as other liberated men remain packed in their filthy bunks.  At Dachau, Hitler's most infamous death camp, U.S. troops found 50 open railway cars packed with corpses.  Prisoners said that 9,000 persons had died of hunger, disease or shooting the three months previous to the liberation of Dachau.  U.S. Signal Corps Photo."
