    Second from last photo is graphic - please be aware before scrolling down.

    I was given 8 photos from the liberation of this camp - (Edited, thank you for the help gents.)
    Nothing too exciting - but may be of interest reference-wise for collectors/historians here.
    Not my area of collecting (I collect old pictures of firearms in use or training as part of my small-arms collection) - but someone who knew I collected "War photos" passed them on to me.

    Soldiers looking very relieved, a few pictures of the camp - some dead Luftwaffe guards.
    Date on (Owl Okl) Photos Dec 30 1945 - thru - Jan 14 1946
    *Apologies for the poor quality - the originals are a little soft on focus, and look to be reprints from a positive, or used negative. I don't know anymore about these pictures, sorry.

    I would post it just under the "After the Battle" section, as it isn't a Concentration Camp, but rather simply a POW camp. Why are there dead Luftwaffe guards bodies? Did they kill them? I can't imagine that the guards would have fought to defend the camp or anything. How odd, hey? I look forward to seeing your photos!

    Thanks - I have put pics in first post in thread.
    Hope they are of interest.
    It seemed right to post them as a group, as they were found, and kept for sixty years.
