    My eyedoctor was a cook/soldier with the American 7th Army. He began to tell me once about liberating Dachau. He stopped after only a couple of seconds and remained silent for about 5 minutes. Then, he changed the subject. Photos like this help me to understand his difficulty in telling me about what he saw. There IS such a thing as evil in this world, make no mistake.
