"Hitler's concentration camps"

Totalitarian leader of Germany from 1933 until his suicide in 1945, Austrian-born Adolf Hitler and his cronies set up a system of prison and work camps in Germany, Poland, France, and other occupied nations in which an estimated 11 to 14 million people -- mainly Jews, Poles, Communists, intellectuals, homosexuals, Roma, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Adventists, the mentally and physically handicapped, and Soviet prisoners of war -- were executed and starved.

This photograph of Jewish slave survivors was taken at Buchenwald concentration camp by a U.S. Army soldier on the day the camp was liberated -- April 16, 1945. Future journalist, author, and Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel is the face next to the far post in the second row from the bottom, second box frame from the left.
