Some time ago I wrote of seeing the bodies of some 168 Belgians who had been slain by the Ger- mans, just because they refused to work as the Aanericans were ap- proaching the airfield where they were working. Well, when our tro~ps ea~ptured the Genman town of Wiemer earlier this month, they found a concentration camp (Buch- enwald) near the town. --human ashes--and bits ef bones. This camp was for German po- Mind you, this was some 11 days litical prisoners of all countries, after the place had been ca~ptured. There were some 30,0()0 interned Most of the stufg had ,been cleaned there cohen the Yanks arrived, ttp, but enough was purposely left Now for some of the ur~believ~hly so everyone could witness it and gruesome details. First, let me see for hianself. At the time we say that I am telling you this be- arrived some 150 persons were cause General FAsenhower and all dyir~g every day from starvation the h~gh officials want the people and torture. Our medical officials back harne to know who our enamy immediately removed those who is and the atrocities he has oould possibly be saved to ho~pi- commibted. Soldiers are being tals. However, there were hun- taken to th~ cav~p from all over dreds who were so far gone and so they can see first hand the evi- their bodies so emaciated that they deuce. Also, a delegation from could not acce~t food or medical the British Parliament and many treatment. Although efforts have correspondents, as well as hun- been made to save them, great dreds ef German civilians, so they " too can see for themselves, and so the whole world will ,be ir~foraned. As I said, there were some 30,000 from many c~untries found there when we arrived. In addition, some 51,000 had ~been murdered, and died there durktg the past six l years. With .my own eyes I saw the re- mains of what, just a few days ago, were living corpses. They stacked an a large wagon side on four tiers of shelves that iust as you would pile on cord wood. There was a pile of these pitiful .specimens on the ground nearby. P should estimate well over 100 on the wagon and. pile. Just inside the building nearby was the crematory. There were 12 furnaces, each capable af burn- ing three 'bodies at once. Inside the furnaces were the charred re- mains of the people they were burning w~hen we got there. Out- side were two large piles of ashes lined either wall. Their feet were placed against the walls and their heads toward the center aisle. In this "manner about 400 could be cro~vded into this one building. Thirty-eight prisoners had died in this one room the day the Yanks ~ot there. I saw the register book with their names, their nationality, their offense, their prison terms and their sickness listed. Just rmw as I am typing this, the radio has annommed that at t~e insistence of General Ike, a full report of the atrocities of the "camp unnamed"--~but I ~m sure it is this one or one like it--qbe placed before our Congress and the SF Conference. It is very hard for people to conceive that any so-called civilized nation could possibly reach to so low depths. They even had a "museum" w~ere parts of the haman body were dis- played. An example were placards af tatooed flesh stripped frexn the owners, as if they were etchings. I saw clu~s with which they beat to death those they wanted to get rid of, and the racks alor~g the wall of the crematorium where the bodies were hanged--just like you hang elothes--awaitlng their turns or until they were dead. I saw the kitchen where their daily ration, which was more nearly like pig ~lop, was prepared. I con- sisted of ~bout 24 large boilers of 1000 liters (250 gallons) each. I saw metal bowls lying in the bunks ma~y of which were without mat- tresses and many that were cover- ed witch human refuse from those boo sick or weak to move. People who were human beings had to live under conditions rm animal couM stand. I could go on, but I think I have told you e~ough. In- cidental~ly, I took any camera, but did n~t take a l~eture, for could not brk~g myself to record on film the flings I had seen. I will be vividly embedded in my memory forever. My ~ulde happened to be a Swiss National, about 55 or 60, who had been i~ternod in 1941 tz~a~e ha had crewed the from hoane in Zurich to visit his sister group of small independent states living in Genmany.

T~ere was blood ~II over the floor and wa~. This is a monument the Nazis and the SS have given the world. There are many others like it all over Germany, Poland and Russia. The c~mp .commander had been ordered to destroy all the bodies and other evidence, but the Ameri- cans got there before they had completed their task. They still had thousands to burn and bury when we arrived. Maybe the mass of German people are not to bl~ame for bhose atrocities, but they are to blame and should be held responsible to ever allow mmh a regiane to get hold of the country. They were 1{)0 per cent back of their Fuehrer and the Nazis, as long as they were winning and on temp. They no~ claim complete in- nocence and complete dislike for the Nazis, just like after they lost the last war. I think every Ger- man should have to suffer the oonsequences. Then perhaps, they wi.ll not be so quick to let a bunch of maniacs get control ef their country. They may then question their leaders instead of dbeying all orders and not asking w~hy. Never agai~ should Germany ,be permit- ted to become a ~orld power. It ahouhi be ~ in~ a Many of the officers ha~e remark- ed that they couldn't see why Ger- many wanted to conquer any more lands, for they already had ~e pret~est country in the world. That would seem the tr~th. I has been some time since I have heard from any of you. In fact, I have received no lettem ex- cept from ~ ~fitten after April firsL Our mail is just now catch- ing up wi~h us, so no doubt I'tl hear soon. This may not 'be a very interest- ing letter, but at least it shotfld be revealing. You may think I am a sadist too, for writing off such hor- r~le thin~gs, but I want you a~d every American back home to know ~bout Buchenwald and the other ca~nps like it. Some of my best friends have been killed because of the people who were responsible for such atrocities. I want to see that they get wi~at is due them. F~very Amar~ean and Allied soldier and nurse and Red Cross g~rl who has seen Buchenwald feels exac~y the same way. I~ ever I fett any tolerance for the Germans, the last bit of it lef~ a~ter I saw this "monurner~t to the Nazis and their S~q fanatics." Lots of love, Bill.
