The Liberation

The liberation of the Jews from the concentration camps was an experience that coupled both intense joy and intense pain for those involved. The American generals, Patton, Eisenhower, and Bradley were horrified at what had been done to human beings by the Nazis. During April and May of 1945, one by one Buchenwald, Dachau, Mauthausen , Bergen-Belsen, and many other concentration camps were liberated.
