    Overview

    Summary
    Videotape testimony of Stanley M., who was born in 1926 and enlisted in the United States military at age eighteen. He recalls having no awareness of what a concentration camp was or the systematic killing of Jews prior to entering Mauthausen with the 65th Infantry Division; having two sets of dog tags so he could not be identified as a Jew in case of capture; keeping the former prisoners in Mauthausen so they would not leave and overeat; their disbelief that he was a Jewish solider; obtaining contact information from the prisoners to inform relatives in the United States that they were alive; observing some U.S. soldiers beating the German guards; arranging the bar mitzvah of a former prisoner with a Jewish chaplain; losing his belief in God, but slowly regaining it; and retuning to Mauthausen with his wife and children in 2000. He shows photographs.
