    Overview

    Summary
    Videotape testimony of John C., who enlisted in the National Guard after the invasion of Poland in September 1939. He recalls being called to active duty in January 1941; attending officer training school; assignment to a tank destroyer battalion; deployment in France in August 1944; crossing the Rhine; entering Ohrdruf in April 1945, having had no advance preparation; the pervasive stench, piles of corpses, and very few prisoners (walking skeletons); encounters with former prisoners including Leo L.; and taking photographs. Mr. C. notes not discussing this experience except with other members of his unit at their reunions, until a recent liberators conference in Washington. He shows his photographs of Ohrdruf.
