Videotape testimony of Henry R., who was born in 1924 and drafted into the United States military. He recalls serving in the 20th Armored Division; landing in Le Havre and moving through Belgium and Holland into Germany; arriving at Dachau immediately after troops from his unit had liberated it; first seeing a boxcar filled with corpses; speaking Yiddish to a few of the prisoners; being overwhelmed by the condition of the prisoners, as were all his fellow soldiers; not being able to process what he saw for days; difficulty still conceiving what he witnessed; and his involvement in Holocaust education.
