Summary Matthew Rozell reconstructs a lost chapter of the Holocaust -- the liberation of a 'death train' deep in the heart of Nazi Germany in the closing days of the World War II. Drawing on never-before published eye-witness accounts, survivor testimony, and wartime reports and letters, Rozell brings to life the true stories behind an iconic 1945 liberation photograph taken by the soldiers who were there.
