Videotape testimony of Harold S., who was born in Missouri in 1920, and served in the United States Army in World War II. He recounts joining the Air Force in 1942; deployment to England; serving with a radar unit in France, Luxembourg, and Germany; visiting Buchenwald three days after liberation; sick and emaciated prisoners; wheelbarrows filled with corpses; a lampshade made of human skin; feeling numbness, disbelief, then anger; taking photographs (his wife, horrified, threw them away); and visiting divided Berlin as an officer many years later.
