Description

Content Note: Caption text from separate sheet: "Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander, watches grimly while occupants of a German concentration camp at Gotha demonstrate how they were tortured by the Nazi sadists operating the camp. General 'Ike' visited the camp during a tour of the Third Army front. General Omar Bradley, 12th Army Group CG, and Lt. Gen. George S. Patton, 3rd Army CG, are at the Supreme Commander's right." A survivor lays across a table. Another survivor holds his wrists, pulling his arms across the table. An army official explains the demonstration, pointing to the man on the table. A group of Army officials stands behind the generals, looking on. Numbered 4 on the reverse (Izac 66)
