I Have Never Forgotten You: The Life & Legacy of Simon Wiesenthal (2007) USC Shoah Foundation Interview, 1997 "It was on May 5th, at 10 o'clock in the morning." "Even beforehand, we knew that it was going to happen." "We had not gotten any food for the last few days. Nothing." "Prisoners were crawling out of the 'Death Block' and ate grass that grew (thumb and forefinger slightly apart) only this high. And so did I." (looks away...) "And then an American tank appeared. I went out and wanted to get to the tank." "After a couple of steps on all fours...all I could see was the American flag." -Simon Wiessenthal Colonel Richard Seibel, 1907-1999 Commander, US 11th Armored Division- (sighs heavily) "It was something that I had never hoped in my life, to see, or experience." "I was shocked, really and truly shocked...to see these dead people lying around in piles like wood, if you will...and others so sick and so weak they were truly walking zombies..." --- I started to tear up at the mention of Wiessenthal being on all fours and looking up at the American flag.
