In April 1945, near the end of World War II, American soldiers surged into Germany as the Third Reich began to crumble.
It was there that they stumbled upon a horrifying discovery -- the Nazi concentration camp, Buchenwald.
Of the 250.000 Jewish prisoners held there, only 4.000 were still alive. More camps were then discovered throughout Germany
and occupied Europe -- were a total of 6 million Jews perished in what became known as the Holocaust.
