    Videotape testimony of Jerry S., who was drafted into the United States Army in 1943. He recounts assignment to the 82nd Airborne Division; dropping into France behind enemy lines; fighting from town to town in Germany; entering Dachau, having no conception of a concentration camp; observing prisoners who looked like walking cadavers, mostly Jews; providing whatever food and water they had; observing piles of corpses, human hair, and belongings; United Stares military authorities compelling local Germans to go through Dachau; their specious claim of having no knowledge of the camp; and leaving shortly thereafter.
