This photo album was donated to The Atlas Group in 2003. It documents a wicked experiment undertaken in 1981 by an extreme right wing militia. The group laced 208 household staples with arsenic, salmonella, E.coli, thallium and listeria, and placed the tampered goods in its enemies’ neighborhood shops. This resulted in the death of 6 infants, 2 adolescents and 1 adult, and the acute poisoning and hospitalization of 157 people between 1981 and 1983.
