Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
A collection of ten photographic prints taken by United States Army Lieutenant Arthur Goldstein upon the liberation of the Dachau and/or Buchenwald concentration camps in 1945. The photographs mostly show the human remains of deceased camp prisoners, including images of human corpses piled in trenches and wagons and images of American forces and possibly camp survivors moving human remains between different parts of the camps. Each photograph is black and white and measures approximately five and a half by eight centimeters. There is no information written on verso of any of the prints. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum holds a related collection: the Arthur Goldstein photograph collection (Accession Number 1994.161.1). The description for the Arthur Goldstein photograph collection identifies the Ohrdruf--which was part of the Buchenwald concentration camp network--and Dachau concentration camps as the subjects of that collection's photographs.
