Hungarian actress Livia Nador after being liberated from the Gusen concentration camp in Linz, Austria.

Towards the end of the war, Gusen was folded into the Mauthausen-Gusen camp system and some consider Gusen to one of most brutal of the Austrian camps; it was at Gusen 420 Jewish children were killed by lethal injection to the heart. 
The camp was largely forgotten until 1965, when camp survivors worried about the horrors being forgotten and bought up the property to preserve the crematorium and build the Gusen Memorial. In 2004, the Austrian government—in collaboration with Poland—built the Gusen museum.

Generals Patton, Bradley and Eisenhower looking the bodies of Ohrdruf prisoners who were burned alive by the SS guards.
Edit: The situation definitely did not occur at Ohrdruf, but rather Gardelegen.
