As a soldier in World War II, Verne R. Baker helped liberate prisoners in a German concentration camp.”I saw it. I was there,” said Baker of the Holocaust.The 85-year-old Chambersburg man was one of the American soldiers who liberated the people in the Dachau concentration camp on April 29, 1945, near the end of World War II.”We were pretty mad at the German people,” he said. “To this day, I can’t see how anybody could treat people this way.”Dachau was considered the first concentration camp created by the Nazis (National Socialist Party) in Germany. It was located on the property of an abandoned munitions factory near the town of Dachau, about 10 miles northwest of Munich, Germany.It is estimated that between 1933 and 1945, 188,000 people were imprisoned in the camp. Around 28,000 reportedly died in the camp between January 1940 and May 1945.What Baker saw in Dachau was unlike anything he had ever seen or imagined, he said. It was a sight that brought many soldiers to tears.
