"Clandestine photograph of medical experimentation victim Bogumila Babinska in the Ravensbrueck concentration camp. She was one of 74 "Rabbits" chosen for sadistic medical experimentation. Doctors cut her thigh muscles and cut into her shin bone, crippling and almost killing her. Despite this, she was forced on a death march with other inmates beginning April 28, 1945.
