    Overview

    Summary
    Videotape testimony of Al H., who was drafted into the United States Army in 1941. He recounts serving in the 104th Infantry Division; landing on Utah beach; fighting as they progressed through France, Belgium, and the Netherlands into Germany; liberating Nordhausen in 1945; the pervasive stench and corpses strewn about; his uncontrollable sobbing; observing General Dwight Eisenhower's reaction; taking photographs; ordering local Germans to bury the dead; their denial of any knowledge of the camp; assisting Jewish women prisoners who had been hiding nearby; leaving after two or three days; and working at a displaced persons camp.
