David A. Holocaust testimony (HVT-1948) interviewed by Bobbie Berger and Murray Berger

Oral History | Fortunoff Collection ID: HVT-1948

Videotape testimony of David A., who was born in approximately 1924 and served with the United States Army 4th Armored Division, Medical Battalion in World War II. He recounts fighting in the Battle of the Bulge; liberating Ohrdruf; emaciated prisoners; corpses piled in trenches; the pervasive stench which he still recalls; and forcing the townspeople to walk through the camp (their denials of knowledge of the camp were not credible). Mr. A. notes having no prior knowledge of what a concentration camp was, and sharing his experiences with his daughter. He shows photographs.
