Videotape testimony of Christy A., who was drafted into the United States army in December 1942. He describes training as a radio mechanic; service in France and Germany; briefly entering Buchenwald after it was liberated; emaciated prisoners in overcrowded bunks; his shock at the conditions; hundreds of corpses near the crematoria; the anger of a Jewish-American soldier who was in their group; difficulty communicating with the prisoners; and his wish to leave quickly.
