Kenneth D. Wichman writes his wife 'here, the former Delores Grotte of German atrocities irt Concentration catnps which his battalion had liberated. He writes of hopes in the letter that the war with Germany would soon be over and later. In his letter he also tells later. In his leter he also tells of having seen some of the more beautiful scenery and loeaftions In Germany as well as the Bavarian Alps and some of the sections which had not toeen touched by war. His letter: "Well, here it is, the 1st of May land we have about four inches of snow on the ground. It has really ibeen nasty the past couple of weeks. We haven't done so toad, though, have been staying in either houses or nice oarns full of straw. Right now I am sitting at a desk in an upstairs room of a quaint old farm house listening to some "tooogy- wopgy on the radio. It's almost like iving agaitj. Many Nationalities We 'have done some extensive iberating the past few days and we have met many French, Russians, Poles, 'Checzs, Yugoslavs, Rumanians, Hungarians, Dutch, Danes (one could speak good English), Italians, British and Scotch, who have been prisoners here five years. We have fed most of these nationalities and have clothed some and sent them on their way behind our lines. '-Twas really a league of nations. Russians Would Join Us "One Italian had scars, welts and bruises al over his leg's and back where the SS troops had beaten him. We took him to the medics. We had one Russian who wanted to join up with us more than anything in the world. He was a . drier and mechanic. His. wife and three children had" been hung by the Germans and their home burned to the ground so there was nothing for him to go back to Kiev for and he wanted to fight the Germans with us, but we could not take him. We have taken masses of Nazi prisoners lately and many of them are just kids, 15 and 16 years old, but the majority were old men. Horrible Camp Sights "One of the most horrible sights I've seen was at the concentration camp at Dakau. Words alone cannot express its horrors It is one of the most notorious of all the many camps in Germany. It is hard to toelieve that Any man could treat his fellow men in such a manner. I used to think that much of what you heard about atrocities was just propaganda, but not now. I heard stories from the prisoners themselves, those who were still alive. I saw outside the wall of the prison a train of 30 box cars full of dead toadies. They were thrown in there like so many sacks of potatoes. They had been starved to death and they all looked like skeletons with a bit of skin stretched over their toones. Some had died from beatings, some were worked to death, others died from exposure. Some were clothed and some completely naked. A Huge Crematory "Inside the 'gates there was a low brick building with a tall smoke stack. There was a hugh furnace with many doors inside the building. One of the doors was open and arms, legs hands and feet were sticking out. This was the crematory. In another building, which was quite large, there were two rooms stacked to the ceiling full of bodies to be cremated. In another room there was a torture chamber where • they were beaten, tortured with red hot irons, mad dogs and many other >f the different types which had oeen used. Prisoners Storm Fences "Their barracks were filthy and crowded. There was a hospital but I don't know what tfor. The patients were nothing but skin and toones, some dead, some alive. There were 'from three to six in a bed so they could keep warm. It was a pitiful sight. When the prisoners saw . iflhe li^America cming, those who were able stormed the electrically charged fences and many of them were electrocuted. Those who managed to get through beat the German guards to death with sticks and stones and even their bare hands. There were many concentration or labor camps around this area. The roads were cluttered with these prisoners in their striped suits, slave laborers and refugees, half' of them not knowing where they were going, just going. Most of them have no homes or families to go to." home on leave from the South Pacific for 30 days. He doesn't know what his new assignment will :be until he gets there.

TOM: "It's mighty nice to receive a compliment like you've just given us, Judge. We do take our responsibilities very seriously and try to do the right thing with everybody. In spite of it, we get criticized now and then." OLD JUDGE: "I know... you've got to take the bitter with the sweet in times like these. Speaking of criticism, and I mean really unfair criticism, reminds me of the spirit beverage business." FRANK: "How is that, Judge?" OLD JUDGE: "Simply this... can you think of any other business in which the seller is responsible for. what the byyer does with his merchandise? If a person eats too much cake and gets indigestion, the baker isn't blamed. Nor is the coffee merchant criticized if someone drinks too much coffee and can't sleep. But the seller of spirit beverages gets blamed plenty if one of his customers overindulges. Doesn't seem quita fair, does it, Tom?" TOM: "Frankly, it doesn't, Judge. We'vi never looked at it that way before."
