Veterans who arrived to rescue people in the camps describe what they saw; human skeletons barely alive, and some not able to walk. Some were fed too much, too soon, and died from overeating. Bodies were piled on top of bodies, and sometimes they would lift a finger, indicating that they were alive. Many stories are told by those who recall these events so well. These first-hand accounts are tragic and very difficult to hear. At the end, we are reminded that it's for real, it happened, and it could happen again.
