Inmates waving a home-made American flag greet U.S. Seventh Army troops upon their arrival at the Allach concentration camp on April 30, 1945.

Nazis did not want to be caught holding the Jews hostage so they fleed. Later on, the British, Canadian, American, and French troops found the Jews and set them free. Soviet soldiers were the first to liberate concentration camp prisoners in the final stages of the war. Also left behind were victims' belongings: 348,820 men's suits, 836,255 women's coats, and tens of thousands of pairs of shoes.
