In late March 1945 John Loengard photographed 19 year old private Joe Demler during the liberation of the Stalag A-12 Camp in Limburg, Germany. Emaciated Demler (captured during the Battle of the Bulge) only weighed about 70 pounds. He was quickly dubbed “the human skeleton” when the photo ran in TIME LIFE.

Against all odds, Demler survived. “In the years since the war, he’s led a quiet life.’’

In 2012 the documentary ‘Honor Flight’ was released, in which Demler plays a central role. This clip shows 87 year old Demler.
