Emaciated Jewish survivors pose in a barracks in the newly liberated Ampfing concentration camp, a sub-camp of Dachau.

Among those pictured is Leslie Keller (left) and Feri (right) from Szeged, Hungary. Keller was deported from his hometown of Oradea to Auschwitz on June 4, 1944. In January 1945 he was sent on a death march which ended in Amphing, where he was liberated on May 4.

The original caption reads "These inmates of the Ampfing concentration camp in Germany were recently liberated by U.S. Third Army troops. Out of 4,500 prisoners held in the camp, 2,500 died of starvation, were piled six high in a ditch and covered over with dirt."
