Fascinating cache of Auschwitz photos

The title to this post links you to an article in today's New York Times, about a photo album put together by one of the SS officers who ran the concentration camp at Auschwitz during WWII. The images are actually of the leisure time of the camp staff, not the horrors endured by the camp inmates. The album was offered to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, which has put the images up on the Web. Visit the site to see their display, "Auschwitz Through the Lens of the SS: Photos of Nazi leadership at the camp." The Holocaust Memorial Museum has other images, and the juxtposition is amazing.
