Photograph | Photograph Number: 82762

The charred corpses of prisoners lie amongst trash and rubble in the Kaufering IV concentration camp.

Original caption reads, "The Landsberg Atrocity: the charred corpses of Jewish prisoners found lying in the ashes of their prison hut set afire by retreating Nazi prison guards at Landsberg. These prisoners were
apparently burned alive when they were locked in their wooden huts and told to stay there or be shot by the guards. Burned fragments of clothing cling to some of the emaciated bodies while others are naked."
