The camp was liberated by Soviet troops on 23 July 1944, but most of the remaining prisoners had been moved west. The Soviet troops made a documentary film about the camp soon after liberation. As well as the poison gas canisters, large piles of human bones, and hundreds of thousands of shoes were discovered.

German medics offer assistance to a gravely wounded Red Army soldier. Both of the man's arms are smashed. His left arm, still unattended, is obviously in need of amputation. This photo was taken in July 1941, early on in the war with Russia. As the war progressed, assistance to Russian wounded lessened until it disappeared completely. By 1943, all Russian wounded were shot as a matter of routine.
