Leon S. Holocaust testimony (HVT-2466) interviewed by Stephen Bressler,
Videotape testimony of Leon S., who enlisted in the United States Army in 1943. He recalls assignment to the 42nd division of the 7th Army; combat during the Battle of the Bulge; learning in April 1945 about the liberation of Dachau; a brief visit with a small group of soldiers; piles of emaciated bodies; visiting sick prisoners in former SS barracks; observing quiet, rather than jubilation, since the former prisoners were so weak and sick; his colleagues sharing his sense of horror; later volunteering for a counter-intelligence unit which apprehended war criminals; and working with Jewish camp survivors after his return to the United States.
