Frigjøringen av Europa 1945

Frigjøringen av Europa 1944-1945

De fleste bildene i dette fotogalleriet er tatt av den amerikanske soldaten Charles Overstreet. Han var fotograf og radiomann i den amerikanske 252nd Field Artillery Battalion under andre verdenskrig. Han dokumenterte sin reise med bilder fra Wisconsin i USA til hjerte av Tyskland under frigjøringen av Europa. Brutaliteten og ødeleggelsen av Europa gjorde store inntrykk på den unge mannen. I dette fotogalleriet publiseres bildene hans usensurert. Bildene inneholder krigshandlinger, vold og død. Vi advarer mot særdeles sterke bilder.

ADVARSEL: Bildene inneholder død og krig!

Låven ble deretter ble satt i brann med. De fleste av fangene ble brent levende, noen ble skutt da de prøver å flykte. Forbrytelsen ble oppdaget to dager senere av amerikanske soldater fra US 102nd Infantry Division okkuperte området.
