WWII-GERMANY-LEIPZIG-THEKLA-LIBERATION

Burnt bodies lie on the ground in the Thekla camp, outside Leipzig, end of April 1945. On the 18th of April, the workers of the Thekla plane factory were locked-in by the Germans in an isolated building of the factory and burned alive by incendiary bombs. About 300 prisoners died. Those who managed to escape died on the barbed wire or executed by the Hitler youth movement, according to a US captain's report Claude B. Merry. The US army attacked Leipzig on the 18th of April 1945. (FILM) AFP PHOTO/ERIC SCHWAB (Photo credit should read ERIC SCHWAB/AFP/Getty Images)
