Statement of Responsibilityherausgegeben vom Amerikanischen Krieginformationsamt im Auftrag des Oberbefehlshabers der Allierten Streitkräfte.
SummaryReport intended for a German audience of what the British and American troops encountered in their advance through Germany in April 1945. At the time of printing, the Allies were still arriving at new concentration camps and some camps (Dachau and Auschwitz, for example) were still in the hands of German camp guards. The report took the form of a photo essay because it was determined that most Germans would not have an opportunity to tour a concentration camp and they needed to see with their own eyes the crimes perpetuated in their name.
