Photograph | Photograph Number: 02151

The bodies of prisoners lie stacked in a shed in the Ohrdruf concentration camp.

The original caption reads "These emaciated, nude corpses, stacked like cord-wood in a bin at the concentration camp at Goth, Germany, tell their own story of the sadism and brutality of the Nazi gaolers. They are strewn with quicklime in a haphazard attempt to destroy evidence of the crimes. General Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander, viewed the Gotha horrors during a tour of the Third Army Front."
