    The laminated mimeographed copy of James Cannon's article, "We weren't to blame, they said, when slaves died," which originally appeared in the April 10, 1945 issue of "Stars and Stripes" and describes what American soldiers discovered when they liberated the Ohrdruf concentration camp and the feelings expressed by Germans who lived nearby as American soldiers forced them to examine the camp. "The Holocaust did happen," from the June 17, 1993 issue of the "Hollis News" provides some biographical information about the war-time activities of Chester Harrison and also reprints the above "Stars and Stripes" article.
