From time to time, it was the practice of the German military to separate American Jewish soldiers from their budies and transfer them to death camps. The corpse of one of these men was found at the Nazi concentration camp in Ohrdruf, Germany.
"There were 31 bodies piled in one place and more than that tumbled together on top of each other in a nearby shack -65 in all. Some of the bodies were clothed in rags and some were completely naked. One body was that of an American soldier. Blood had caked the ground around the bodies into pancakes of red mud."
