Aerial Photography and the Holocaust: The Dino A. Brugioni Collection


A veteran of World War II, Dino Brugioni joined the CIA in 1948 and eventually worked in its National Photographic Interpretation Center. In the 1970s, he began to wonder what photographs the CIA might have of Auschwitz in 1944. Eventually he acquired a collection of aerial photographs taken of various camps during the war, which he donated to the Museum.
