Description: Oblique aerial photograph.
A forced labour camp attached to the Maschinenfabrik - MAN - engineering factory near Mainz, Germany, on 2 June 1945 a few days after it was liberated. Like so many camps, it was quickly dismantled post-war and very few images of it remain. The camp contained prisoners from throughout Nazi occupied Europe brought to the camp for their engineering skills. You can clearly see deserted guard towers on the perimeter fence and people looking up at the photographic reconnaissance aircraft taking the photographs.
