In Response To: Re: Concentration Camp (Klaus S.Feindler)

A description of what the Dachau concentration camp looked like only hours after its surrender is contained in Chapter 29 of the book "Growl of the Tiger". The author is Maj.Dean M. Chapman who was an assistant to Maj.Gen.Wm.H.H.Morris, Commander of the 10th AD. Both officers visited the camp together with a guide from the 42nd Inf.Div. This is his eyewitness account. As an aside, Gen. Patton visited the Buchenwald concentration camp much further up north near the city of Weimar.
