German civilians from nearby Nordhausen bury the dead in grave in background--"We used to talk about this to people, to Germans, and every one that we ever talked to insisted that they didn't know this was going on in their areas. But we also got the impression that they knew the camps were not a place to go."

Afternoon in Hersfeld, 20 April 1945--"Whenever we moved, of course, we loaded up all the vehicles. At one point, we had so many vehicles that some vehicles had to tow others because there weren't enough drivers. We were requisitioning vehicles from the Germans and from other Army outfits. The common thing for the Army to do was to steal from itself. If a vehicle was left unattended and somebody else needed it--off they went."
