Description:
Abstract Videotape testimony of Albert M., who was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1922. He recalls his military service beginning in 1942; transport to Scotland; and his battalion's progress from Omaha Beach east through the Ardennes. Mr. M. describes his arrival at Buchenwald in April 1945; complete lack of knowledge about such camps; the soldiers' shock at seeing piles of bodies; the horrible stench; the horrendous state of the survivors; and feigned ignorance of the local Germans. He notes an encounter with a German woman in another town who led him to a Jew in hiding. He discusses the permanence of his memories of Buchenwald and the importance of conveying the existence of such horrors to others.
