Buchenwald Concentration Camp Liberated by U.S. Infantry Hot

The Buchenwald concentration camp, located near Weimar, Germany, is liberated by the U.S. 89th Infantry Division. This was one of the first concentration camps created by the Nazis and it is the largest within Germany itself.

Technically Buchenwald was never an extermination camp, but well over 50,000 died here. On liberation there are around 21,000 inmates still alive but it's estimated that nearly 6,000 are beyond medical help.
