Photograph | Photograph Number: 42896

Pages of a photo album showing portraits of Otto Schenkelbach before and after his incarceration in concentration camp.

The first couple are "Vor dem K.Z." or before the concentration camp. And the lower three are "Nach dem K.Z." or after the concentration camp.

The caption reads, "Oh Buchenwald ich kann/Dich nicht vergessen/ Weil Du mein Schicksal bist/ Wer Dich verliess der kann es nicht es erst ermessen/ Wie wunderschoen die FREIHEIT ist..." [Oh Buchenwald, I can't forget you because you are my fate. Whoever leaves there cannot fathom how wonderful FREEDOM is...]
