I Was Nineteen

Here is a first-hand account of the liberation of Buchenwald, written by Harry Herder, who was nineteen years old at the time.

It's fairly horrifying, but absolutely worth the read.

On one tray was a skull partially burned through, with a hole in the top; other trays held partially disintegrated arms and legs. It appeared that those trays could hold three bodies at a time. And the odor, my God, the odor.
