Photos from the
collection of Neil Damgaard
July 23, 2004
ILLUSTRATED here are two examples of the collection
which includes about 30 pictures. -- the first is my
father outside of the camp, on liberation day itself. My
father was Captain Martin J. Damgaard, 602nd
Combat Engineer Battalion (Camouflage).
He was at the entrance to the
Buchenwald camp near Weimar on some attached duty that
day. The second picture is grisly, and representative
of the other photos.
Another officer from the 602nd, who is still
living in Florida, told me that he has a similar
collection and once offered it to a Holocaust museum, but
was refused. The images are too awful for display.
