The Liberation of Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp
This photo, part of a series that was taken on liberation of the camp by the British Army to document the Nazi war crimes. It shows an army officer using a bulldozer to move some of the many bodies into a mass grave. The officer is wearing a covering over his face, to protect his nose and mouth from smell and disease. The photograph demonstrates one of the problems that the Allied forces had after liberation, with the sheer number of dead and dying people that they had to care for.
