    Videotape testimony of Thomas F., who was born in Illinois. He describes growing up with Jewish friends; his indignation upon encountering antisemitism in college; naval service in the Pacific, then in the Department of Special Assignments in the Bureau of Naval Ordinance in Washington; being assigned to "confirm unusual circumstances discovered" in Ohrdruf in April 1945; shock and horror upon observing stacks of emaciated bodies; returning to the United States; submitting a written report; and new assignments. Mr. F. discusses learning about concentration camps in the press and connecting it with his experience; antipathy toward Germans; extreme negative feelings concerning antisemitism; and conveying this to his children.
