    Videotape testimony of Col. Edmund M. (Retired) who was a first lieutenant in the 65th Infantry which liberated Mauthausen on May 5, 1945. Colonel M. describes stumbling upon the camp with no prior knowledge of it; the prisoners' condition; the pervasive stench; living conditions; the stone quarry; the gas chambers at the Hartheim castle; and his own desire for justice. He relates historical background on Mauthausen; shows many photographs; describes Franz Ziereis (camp Kommandant), atrocities committed by him and his deathbed statement which Colonel M. obtained from a nurse who helped record it; and the nearby civilian population's denial of knowledge of the camp, which he did not believe. Colonel M. discusses his participation as an intelligence officer in the war crime trials at Dachau.
