Videotape testimony of Martin S., who was born in Bronx, New York in 1922 and served in the United States military as a radio repair man in Europe during World War II. He recounts passing outside of Buchenwald immediately prior to its liberation and observing thousands of skeletal prisoners in striped uniforms as well as the pervasive stench of dead bodies. Although his unit left the next day, having no exposure to the prisoners except briefly observing them twice, Mr. S. notes it was one of his most traumatic experiences.
