Photograph | Photograph Number: 34791

Three rows of German soldiers stand at attention and salute during a military funeral in Auschwitz.

The original caption reads "Beisetzung von SS Kameraden nach einem Terrorangriff." (Burying our SS comrades from a terror attack.)

[This probably is the aftermath of the December 26 bombing based on the snow on the ground but it could also be September 13th bombing of IG Farben in which 15 SS men died in the SS residential blocks and 28 were seriously wounded.]
