T

ime has done little to fade the memories not only of
Holocaust survivors but also the American troops who
liberated the camps. Fifty years ago this month World
War II came to an end, and Americans first entered the
Nazi death camps. Unprepared for what they would find
inside, many did what they could to document the horror.
Some took pictures. Others relied on a pen and paper to tell
the stories of the Holocaust.
One photographer talked as an assistant captured every
word on an Army typewriter. Five decades later, his original
impressions are unaltered.
"Later in the evening at a meeting, our captain told us of a
slave-labor camp near us where it was believed some 200
people had been burned that morning," he wrote. "That
seemed as impossible to us as did the other stories."
The pictures, the words and the memories of these libera-
tors will forever remind the world of the Holocaust.
