Adding watermarks to secure images

Dachau liberation editon 45th Division News

Front page, Dachau liberation edtion of the 45th Division News

Someone used the earlier edition of this image of Dad’s copy of the first page of liberation of Dachau edition of the 45th Division News on a site that I judged to be sympathetic with both Nazism and Holocaust minimizing or denial.

To minimize that happening again, I’ve added digital watermarks to images that may be at greatest risk of misuse.

The original image is in the public domain. I paid a private studio to make a digital reproduction.  I own the rights to that reproduction. I’ve donated the rights to the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center.

If Nazi sympathizers and Holocaust deniers wish to use that image, they can make their own reproduction from the public domain original and not use the one I made.
