Inmates waving a home-made American flag greet U.S. Seventh Army troops upon their arrival at the Allach concentration camp.

Three survivors pictured in the photo are: Martin Kaufman (b. in Krashnik, Poland); Leizer Fajerman (b. Sulejow, Poland, standing on right in a full length coat holding a cigarette); and Irving Miesing (Yitzhak Misengiser). The man in the long coat has alternatively been identified as Eli Okon from Bialystock.

Original caption reads, "After American troops arrived,
homemade American flag was raised by the prisoners of Dachau prison camp. As it waved in the breeze, it seemed to reflect the joy of inmates who realize freedom for the first time in many years."
