Still waiting for Rabbit to explain (not alone) the basic point here.... The longer this goes unaddressed, the lower the interest here goes.

No information on where the alleged doctorers got the image of Toncman to (supposedly) place into the original photo?
. . . I mean Negative Capability, that is, when a man is capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason—Coleridge, for instance, would let go by a fine isolated verisimilitude caught from the Penetralium of mystery, from being incapable of remaining content with half-knowledge. - John Keats, 1817

Already explained.

And how was that done?


Oh please.

Why wouldn't he just be cropped out?


An artistic decision.

There is no evidence that modesty caused anything at the NYT.

There is some evidence -- the picture with Toncman in it. Even with his junk covered, he still looks naked. Editing him out seems reasonable.

As evidence of conditions in concentration camps editing out nakedness is not believable.
They still have lots of video material with living and dead prisoners in rags or completely naked.

The art work aside for the moment; it is not a wall—because clearly the ceiling goes on much farther—it is a chimney, like the one seen in this photo of the US Congressmen at Buchenwald on the 25/26 April [I don't know presently whether this was the same barrack, but it was same type of barrack: a prefabricated horse stable barrack, of which there were only a few at Buchenwald].

It's hard to say if it's the same barrack or just another similar barrack.
Does anyone know about the writing on the bunk?
What it says or when it was written?

Whatever the writing might be, the bunk number doesn't match #27, the top posts are intact in that^ image, the location is wrong (it would be the bunk seen there in the back, partially blocked by the chimney/column) and the wall boards in the background run in the wrong direction for that to be the same location.

Lard, save me from your followers.
