(Original Image) Wöbbelin concentration camp was liberated by the U.S. Army in May, 1945. Many inmates were found in critical condition, suffering of starvation and disease, with some prisoners even having resorted to cannibalism. Despite efforts to attend to the prisoners as quickly as possible, many still died of malnutrition and exhaustion.
I just finished watching the documentary "nazi concentration camps" on Netflix. It shows allies exploring and the recently freed concentration camps. It’s truly horrific and hard to fathom, nothing is hidden in this film. I Def recommend it
So much pain and suffering. If only humanity would learn something of its past mistakes.
r/AccidentalRenaissance but so much more emotion.
Colorized Holocaust photos are invaluable.
My grandfather was part of the 69th Infantry in Southern Germany (they met the Soviets on the Elbe). He stayed in Germany until early 1946. I asked him about 10 years ago how he felt about Holocaust denials and he just said "It happened. It all happened."
