Eventually due to his wounds, Bob Hilliard was sent to the 2nd Air Disarmament Division in Germany. After a short stint working as the division’s German translator, he was asked to start an Army Newspaper. His first assignment was to cover a concert being performed by concentration camp survivors at a nearby makeshift hospital. What he encountered there changed everything.
