Description

Front: Greyed black and white photograph of cold, underdressed men huddled together in a group. Barracks in the background.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:
An especially rare and graphic candid photograph with deckled edges. A large group of men, herded together, almost all bearded, clearly not dressed for the cold weather and a few bare-footed, facing forward. Various barracks-like structures lie several hundred yards behind them. Such photos were strictly forbidden by the Nazis, yet clearly taken by one of them.
