A pile of bodies left to rot in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, found after the camp was liberated by British forces (April 20, 1945). Some 60,000 civilians, most suffering from typhus, typhoid and dysentery, were dying by the hundreds daily, despite the frantic efforts by medical services rushed to the camp.

Buchenwald was a Nazi extermination camp near Weimar, Germany. It was one of the first and largest of concentration camps on German soil. As American soldiers liberated Buchenwald, they found 900 children, like this 5 year old orphan. http://www.vaniercollege.qc.ca/events/holocaust04/children6.html
