Don’t tell the soldiers who saw Dachau that there was no Holocaust!

This morning I was searching for something else when I came across the web site of Don Rodda, an American soldier in World War II; he wrote about his trip to Dachau on May 1, 1945 which you can read here.

At the end of the article on Rodda’s web site, he wrote:

It may have been our Supreme Commander, Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was responsible for our being at Dachau that May Day. As the camps were being overrun, I read in “Yank” a quote from Ike who said, “I hope every American newspaper will print the story of German bestiality in detail.”

Now, fifty-odd years later, and despite all that has been written about the infamous camps, there are those who today deny The Holocaust.

But not I… Not anyone who had seen Dachau.
