One day after their liberation, a group of former prisoners at the Ebensee concentration camp pose outside for US Army Signal Corps photographer Arnold Samuelson.

The former prisoners came out of the infirmary barracks in order to be photographed. Among those pictured is a 21-year old Jewish survivor by the name of Joachim Friedner from Krakow, Poland (center-left holding his metal name tag), and William Hauben (second row from the front between the survivor holding his name tag and the one wearing a blanket). Bernard Smilovic is located second from the left, first row wearing a blanket.

Original caption reads: " Starved prisoners, nearly dead from hunger, pose in the Nazi concentration camp in Ebensee, Austria. In the Austrian Alps the Nazis had one of their largest camps. Large numbers of inmates were starving to death and dying at the rate of 2000 per week. The camp was reputedly used for "Scientific" experiments. It was liberated by the 80th Division, 3rd U.S. Army."


Original caption from donated photograph reads: "Starved prisoners, nearly dead from hunger, pose for the photographer in their rags."
