Photograph | Photograph Number: 24190

Survivors rest on an embankment next to a stopped train.

The train was carrying ca. 2,500 concentration camp inmates, primarily Jewish, who were liberated by the 30th Infantry Division of the U.S. Ninth Army. Many of the prisoners died during the transit, and most survivors were suffering from severe malnutrition and lack of medical attention.
