Extended caption for Image 169 (photo 4) “One of the fellows there—one of the prisoners—was a young man who was the Count of Schweinitz.  I got pretty well acquainted with him.  He was a year younger than I was.  I was nineteen and he was eighteen.  We would have long discussions.  He was, at that point, an unregenerate Nazi.  He grew up in the Hitler Youth.  He inherited his title from his father—both his parents were dead.  Sometimes the discussions got a little hot and heavy, and when he’d get a little bit offensive we would send him out to our tent to clean up all the shoes - shine the shoes and all that.  Our idea was to teach him a little humility.”
