Freed but not saved

4/28/1945

On April 28, 1945, the Army Signal Corps photographed these internees at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany 13 days after their liberation by the British. Despite desperate efforts to save them, 14,000 of the 45,000 prisoners interned at Bergen-Belsen had died by the end of June from the effects of their imprisonment.
