"American troops in Germany last week hit the Nazi death camp belt, an area that revealed such horrors - the bodies of thousands of Allied prisoners shot, starved, beaten and burned to death - that even the cynics of the civilized world now could not fail to be convinced of the truth of German atrocities."
Attached is Martha Gellhorn's (1908 – 1998) very disturbing eyewitness account of the Nazi concentration camp in Dachau, Poland:
"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."
The man primarily responsible for delivering the innocent into the ovens of the death camps was Obergrupenfuehrer Albert Ganzenmüller click here to read about him...
One of the very few escapees from the Treblinka death camp wrote the attached account describing the horrendous moral outrages that he had seen there:
"Experiments were started with the cremation of corpses. It turned out that women burned easier than men. Accordingly, corpses of women were used for kindling the fires... the sight was terrifying, the worst that human eyes have ever beheld."
Here is an account by a war correspondent who was a part of the Allied advance through Germany. He filed this chilling report about the liberation of the Nazi death camp at Nordhausen:
"No one who saw the charnel house of Nordhausen ever will be able to forget the details of that horrible scene... The Yanks stood there stunned and silent,"
Howard Katzander of YANK filed this short dispatch regarding all that he witnessed following the liberation of the Buchenwald concentration camp in Weimer, Germany:
"The camp is a thing that has to be seen to be believed, and even then the charred skulls and pelvic bones in the furnaces seem too enormous a crime to be accepted fully. It can't mean that they actually put human beings --some of them alive --into these furnaces and destroyed them like this."
From time to time, it was the practice of the German military to separate American Jewish soldiers from their fellows and transfer them to concentration camps. The corpse of one of these men was found at the Nazi concentration camp in Ohrdruf, Germany.
