Photomontage published in The Tacoma Sunday News Tribune (Tacoma, Washington) on June 3, 1945 entitled "Remember This! Don't Fraternize" that was prepared by U.S. combat photographer Arnold E. Samuelson in Austria and sent for publication to his hometown newspaper.

The montage includes six photographs of Nazi atrocities and concentration camp victims taken by American combat photographers in Germany and Austria. The photograph of emaciated concentration camp survivors (bottom, second from the right) was taken in Ebensee by Arnold E. Samuelson.

The extended newspaper caption reads: "Lest they forget --The pictures reproduced above form a photographic placard used to remind American soldiers in Germany of the Nazi brutality in concentration camps and were taken by First Lt. Arnold E. Samuelson, photographic officer of the 167th Signal Photo Company whose home is at 4121 N. 18th St. Tacoma. Lt. Samuelson wrote that VE Day brought him his toughest assignment of the war when he photographed what he described as the 'worst concentration camp operated by the Nazis' at Ebensee, Austria, after it had been liberated by the 80th Division of the Third U.S. Army-- Photos by U.S. Army Signal Corps."
