The US 82nd Airborne Division liberates the Wöbbelin concentration camp. It was constructed to house people evacuated from other camps so they wouldn't be found by advancing Allies.

When the American military arrives, they find conditions so bad that 1000 inmates are dead, mostly from starvation, and some have resorted to cannibalism. Citizens of the nearby German town of Ludwigslust are forced to come and tour the camp to see what had happened.
