Videotape testimony of George S., who enlisted in the United States army in 1943. He recalls assignment to the signal corps of the 3rd Army; landing in England in December 1944; antisemitic treatment by fellow soldiers; entering a factory in which slave laborers had worked; shock at observing piles of clothing, especially baby shoes; observing torture devices, documents, and photographs in a prison near Düsseldorf; and questioning locals about the fates of their Jewish neighbors (they feigned ignorance). Mr. S. discusses involvement in anti-war groups due to his experiences.
