The Nazis had used the carts to transport 4, prisoners from the Buchenwald concentration camp to Dachau three weeks previously.

According to the book, the episode would 'haunt Felix Sparks for many years to come'. Worse still, an Army photographer and cameraman had recorded what happened, and their recordings and photos were sent to General Arthur White, the head of the Seventh Army.
