Here are the very stirring prose describing all that journalist Martha Gellhorn's (1908 – 1998) saw at Dachau concentration camp during the Spring of 1945:
"We have all seen the dead like bundles lying on all the roads of half the earth, but nowhere was there anything like this. Nothing about war was ever as insanely wicked as these starved and outraged naked, nameless dead. Behind one pile of dead lay the clothed healthy bodies of the German guards who had been found in this camp. They were killed at once by the prisoners when the American Army entered. And for the first time anywhere, one could look at a dead man with gladness."
