German civilians loot a Nazi train as the war winds down.

Original caption reads: "Civilians, mostly women loot china from a Nazi freight car halted in railyards near Elsenoch, historic German town captured April 6, 1945, by troops of the Third U.S Army. Throughout captured portions of the Reich, the fleeing of Gestapo members is the signal for German civilians, mostly women, to loot shops, trains, bombed houses and warehouses.
