      Ohrdruf, the first camp discovered by American forces where the Nazis failed to eliminate the evidence of brutality, torture, and death. Left in the ashes of burned corpses, piled bodies, and the emaciated humans who had somehow endured what would come to be known as one of the worst instances of human savagery ever documented. General Bradley recalled. "More than 3,200 naked, emaciated bodies had been flung into shallow graves. Others lay in the streets where they had fallen."

    Major Gen. Walter #Wenck was the youngest general of the German Army during #WW2 -- "the Boy General" as he was called. In the closing days of the Battle of Berlin he was given command of the 12th Army and ordered to relieve #Berlin. Since this was impossible, Wenck focused on extracting his troops and as many refugees as possible from Soviet reach; at least 300,000 soldiers and civilians were thus saved from the #Soviets. Ironically, the general was killed in a traffic accident in 1982.
