The Anguish of Liberation and the Return to Life - Through the Lens of History
Jewish prisoners posing for a photograph after the liberation, Dachau, Germany, 1945 - Dachau was a concentration camp for opponents to the Nazi regime, including Jews. Approximately 67,000 prisoners were liberated there on 29 April, 1945, about a third of them Jews. Survivors of the camp had no possessions or means, and thus many of them walked free still wearing prison garb, as they had no other clothes to wear.
