“…I was there when we opened the gates. Some of these poor wretches running out were so emaciated they actually died from the excitement of being liberated. I saw it happen several times.
These people in the camps – they were like walking skeletons. You could see all their bones.
The gates opened and the people ran out yelling, “I’m free! I’m free!” And some of them died right there. I was horrified to see what the SS had done to these people. Roy Gates”
