This picture was taken on August 29, 1945, the day of liberation at Dachau Concentration Camp.  The man on the ground is an SS guard moments away from being executed by the inmates standing near him.

He was executed with the shovel in the hand of the inmate on the left. An Allied soldier turns his back, refusing to intervene.
