This Communist propaganda photo shows several of Emil Kapaun's friends in captivity, taken long after Kapaun died. Sidney Esensten is second from left, Clarence Anderson  is in the middle, and Chester Osborne, whose life Kapaun saved, is at right. Surviving POWs detest this photo; it makes them look healthy in a camp where they were being mistreated.
