    Videotape testimony of Herbert F., an American who was drafted into the military and served on General Dwight Eisenhower's staff in England beginning in early 1944. He recounts assignment to the Pentagon; learning about the liberation of concentration camps from military documents; becoming the Pentagon liaison to American Jewish organizations wanting to improve conditions in the displaced persons camps; visiting the Rothschild Hospital displaced persons camp in July 1946 (he reads from the notes he wrote immediately after his visit); and contacts with members of the Jewish underground. Mr. F. discusses the role of the State Department, the military, former military personnel, and President Truman in assisting or resisting Jewish survivor emigration to the United States and Palestine, and Israeli statehood.
