Videotape testimony of Vincent C., who enlisted in the United States Army in 1937. He recalls landing in Normandy on D-Day; transfer from a ranger to a tank battalion; participating in the Battle of the Bulge; liberating Ahlem; encountering sick, emaciated prisoners left to die; sharing K rations with them, which resulted in several deaths; entering Gardelegen; observing buildings where prisoners had been machine-gunned and confined while the buildings were burned; liberating Salzwedel; observing carts piled with corpses; shooting German personnel; and local civilians claiming no knowledge of the camp (an impossibility). Mr. C. discusses his disbelief at what he had seen. He shows photographs.
