    Looking for photos of execution by hanging of German war criminals taken by US Signal Corps on 10 Nov 1945 at Bruchsal, Germany.

      On 10 November 1945, five Germans were hanged at Bruchsal prison for what has become known as the "Rüsselsheim Massacre" (see en.Wikipedia under this key word). I know that US Army photographers (presumably of the Signal Corps) were present and documented the proceedings. I wonder whether these photos are somewhere in a Digital Collection and can be downloaded. The names of the culprits were Josef/Joseph Hartgen, Philipp Gutlich, Johannes Seipel, Friedrich Wust and Johannes Opper.
