Photograph | Photograph Number: 34976

American GIs and former prisoners in white armbands stand guard around a group of men at Dachau following liberation.

This image is one of several from the collection of Dr. Richard Halfast, chief medical officer of general surgery, who served with the 7th General Hospital and 1st Auxilliary Surgical Group. While other images in Halfast's series show the execution of SS guards following the liberation of the camp, this photograph may depict those Wehrmacht soldiers that had been separated from the SS guards by members of the 157th regiment.

Date
After 1945 April 29
