Carrol Walsh letter

Document | Accession Number: 2009.337 | RG Number: RG-09.082

Consists of a letter written by World War II veteran and liberator Carrol Walsh to Holocaust survivor Stephen Barry on April 10, 2008. Mr. Walsh, who liberated Mr. Barry from a train on the outskirts of Magdeburg, Germany, on April 13, 1945, writes about the friendship that developed between them. He also describes how unworthy he feels when survivors express their gratitude, as the soldiers were doing what they were morally obligated to do.
