Notes

Abstract:
On March 31st Bill Garrison, Dean of the USF Libraries, welcomed a standing-room-only crowd to the Tampa Library's Grace Allen Room to hear author Michael Hirsh discuss his new book, The Liberators: America's Witnesses to the Holocaust. Rich with powerful never-before-published details from the author's interviews with more than 150 U.S. soldiers who liberated the Nazi death camps, The Liberators is an essential addition to the literature of World War II—and a stirring testament to Allied courage in the face of inconceivable atrocities. Mr. Hirsch generously donated the audio tapes of his interviews to the USF Libraries. To hear the interviews and read the transcripts, please go to http://digital.lib.usf.edu/l/ohp-liberators.
