Dennis E. Wile, a U.S. Army photographer, visited the Buchenwald concentration camp shortly after it was liberated in 1945. This exhibit is based on the oral history interview and photographs that he donated to the Fred Roberts Crawford Witness to the Holocaust Project in 1978 and 1981. It was created as part of the Selected Archives at Georgia Tech and Emory (SAGE) digital archive project.
"A picture is very descriptive, but there is a lot left out. If you don't experience it first hand, the picture can only cover so much. It can only imply. It's not the territory, it's only the map."
