Terrible scenes of privation are being enacted daily in the Sudetenland and further into the interior of Czechoslovakia following the occupation of the area by the Germans. Bands of SS men and Nazi civilians who accompanied the troops are repeating the terrorist activities which have previously been seen in Germany. In addition to this, thousands of Czech and anti-Nazi Germans have fled into the remaining Czech territory. These pictures, taken by a staff photographer, prove without question what is taking place in Czechoslovakia since the Nazi occupation.
