    Overview

    Summary
    Videotape testimony of Donald G., who was drafted into the United States Army in 1942. He tells of his training in Georgia and Scotland, then his position as a military policeman in Aachen, Germany; entering the Dora concentration camp in Nordhausen; lack of knowledge of what they were going to see; orders to separate the living from the dead; the terribly undernourished and overworked prisoners; the overwhelming stench (a memory which always returns when he remembers this time); taking pictures; not being able to talk about what he witnessed after his return to the United States; and his later realization of the importance of telling others of his experience. Mr. G. is joined by David C. and they discuss their joint project: visiting schools to describe what it was like to enter concentration camps in 1945.
