A chilling relic from the Nazi concentration camp at Dachau, the 70" x 30" double-sided Nazi flag banner which was suspended upon the wall in the camp's dining hall, presumably the dining hall used by camp inmates. The soldier who recoverd the flag noted the provenance on an inside corner: "Dachau Camp Taken from Dining Hall April 29th 1945 M. Sgt. B. F. McCalle Co. C 232 Inf. Reg. 42nd Div.". Included also is a set of photocopies of original Dachau camp photographs taken shortly after the camp's liberation. Obtained from McCalle by noted museum curator and militaria collector William Rasmussen, a museum de-accessioned piece. A 12" x 5" section of one corner has been snipped away, presumably by other members of McCalle's unit, likely kept as souvenirs.
