After the first American troops entered the Buchenwald concentration camp near Weimar, Germany, on April 11, 1945, General Eisenhower insisted that as many units as possible visit the camp. Here, two U.S. soldiers walk among liberated prisoners. The sign on the barracks wall reads, “The German Political Prisoners Greet Their American Friends.”

Sergeant Charles D. Lemick, an amateur photographer, recorded his wartime journey through Europe.
