Creator

Brown, Elizabeth O. (Donor)

Description

Content Note: Two male civilians begin to wrap a corpse in a white sheet. Three rows of corpses (some shrouded) are visible. Each corpse has a stake laid on top of it. One row of corpses is clothed, but the row the men are working on are naked and emaciated and appear to have lime on them. Liberators walk between the rows. A neat pile of stakes or crosses is visible in the upper lefthand corner. Stamp on reverse: "Passed by U. S. Army Examiner 30646". Numbered 92 on the reverse.
