Dachau death camp would become the prototype for the thousands of concentration camps that sprang up across Germany during the Nazi era. The camp layout and daily routine was widely copied. It was also a training centre for SS concentration camp guards.

1945, Buchenwald Concentration Camp, Germany. It had  provided forced labour to local armaments factories under horrendous conditions. Its first commandant, Karl-Otto Koch, was even arrested, tried and executed by Nazi authorities, 'for incitement to murder and for disgracing both himself and the SS'. After the war, the camp became Soviet  'NKVD special camp number 2' and held Nazis or anti-communist Germans. Thousands of them were buried in mass graves in the woods surrounding the camp.

Nazi photographer Hugo Jaeger took a portfolio of pictures in the newly-established ghetto of Kutno, Poland. We cannot be sure whether his motive was callousness, compassion, or mere curiosity. In a vivid and sad image, this is another, more pensive image of a beautiful young woman who was caught at a moment of time amidst the horror. Her name and fate are unknown. (October 1939)
