April 11: Liberation of Buchenwald
On this date in 1945, at 3:15 in the afternoon, American forces liberated the Buchenwald Concentration Camp. In the previous days, the Germans had partially evacuated inmates and camp administrators had fled. When the US forces arrived there were still 21,000 inmates in the camp, including future Nobel Peace Prize winner, Elie Wiesel.
