Edward R. Murrow reports Buchenwald [audio only]

Murrow broadcast the first eyewitness account of the liberation of Buchenwald.
"You couldn't grasp it all"
Buchenwald was the first of the major concentration camps of Greater Germany to be liberated.

Murrow helped to rescue more than 300 European scholars from persecution by the Nazi regime. During Germany's air raids (known as “the Blitz”) Murrow transmitted his reports live to the United States from the rooftops of London.
