A view of the entrance to the camp. Prisoners' tents are at right and a small building for camp administrative matters is at the left.

The original caption reads: "This picture shows the main and only entrance to the concentration camp inclosure (hereinafter referred to as the Arnstadt Espenfeld Camp. Artificial strips of grass, ostensibly for camouflage purposes (but probably to preclude a view of the ground in front of the tents from the roadway) drape inclosure entrance and the other part of the inclosure in which prisoners would be visible from the road. The boxes on props are water tanks. Hanging near the tank is an iron pipe 8 inches in diameter which was used as a gong signal to awaken and summon the prisoners to the yard."
