Ebensee liberation
Starved prisoners, nearly dead from hunger, pose May 7, 1945 in a Nazi concentration camp in Ebensee, Austria. Ebensee was a sub-camp of the main camp 'Mauthausen' near the town of the same name. Large numbers of inmates were starving to death and dying at the rate of 2000 per week. The camp was reputedly used for "scientific" experiments. It was liberated by the 80th Division of the U.S. Army.
