Scope and Contents of the Materials

This record group contains photo-documents and narratives produced by the personnel of the Allied armed forces in the aftermath of liberation of the German concentration camps in Europe. Additionally, there is a collection of postwar publications and brochures on museums and memorials at the sites of former camps.

Materials in this record group include photographs, reprints of original photographs, and publications about the camp memorials. Photographs are digitized.

Collection Historical Note

Photography at the liberated camps began spontaneously. Allied military personnel largely experienced a shock after being exposed to the evidence of Nazi crimes. Initially, they instantly took photographs for themselves. The US Army Command decided to organize the process of photographing the remaining traces of Nazi crimes. This task was entrusted to the Signal Corps of the American armed forces in Germany and Austria. An order followed to circulate these sets of photographs, depicting the crimes of National Socialism, among the American units stationed in Germany, Austria and France. After the end of the war, American Military Government in Germany started publishing newspapers for the German population, which also published these photo-documents depicting the Nazi crimes against prisoners of the concentration camps.

RG-09.01, Gardelegen Massacre Collection: On 13th April 1945, the SS massacred 1016 religious, political, and military prisoners from the Nordhausen, Rottleberode, Wiede, and Ilfeld concentration camps.
