As an American soldier, he was a member of the 102nd Infantry Division and witnessed the aftermath of the Gardelegen atrocity. The collection includes a copy of Hoffman's recollections and information about his corrections to the exhibit text in 1978 at Yad Vashem which had misidentified Gardelegen as a concentration camp. Also includes text written by Hoffman's wife, Dr. Alice Hoffman, about her husband's experiences.
