Oral History | Fortunoff Collection ID: HVT-1018

Videotape testimony of George C., who was born ca. 1922 and served in the United States Infantry during World War II. He recalls encountering German soldiers eager to surrender; entering Wöbbelin concentration camp a few hours after its liberation; seeing hundreds of corpses in sand dunes and railway cars; encounters with survivors, one of whom turned down an opportunity to kill a guard; and a German religious group that buried the dead in the camp. He discussed the destruction of prisoners' dignity; his abhorrence of war; and his fear of a recurrence.
