    Emaciated body of a prisoner at Landsberg, found by the liberating American 7th Army.

Original caption reads: "The Landsberg Atrocity: The emaciated bodies of Jewish prisoners bear evidence of the slow death by starvation they were undergoing before having been locked in their wooden huts by retreating Nazi prison guards, who set the huts afire and left. These inmates managed to muster enough strength to break out of their huts but not before they succumbed to the smoke and flames."
