The horror of Ohrdruf Concentration Camp

Burned corpses next to a pit with a mound of dirt in the background. This photograph was taken by Paul Wentink, an American soldier, following the liberation of Ohrdruf Concentration Camp. Ohrdruf was a sub-camp of Buchenwald Concentration Camp. A forced labor camp, Ohrdruf prisoners worked building huge underground mountain tunnels that housed V-weapons factories.
