We were told that everything in the Buchenwald camp was as it had been on the day of liberation-torture devices, gallows, crematoria containing charred human remains, gas chambers, piles of teeth with gold extracted, lamp shades of tattooed human skin-except that the diet and living conditions of the current population of 20,000 prisoners were a bit improved, and they were free within the barbed wire compound to move wherever they were physically able to with their slow, torturous, tiny-stepped shuffle. Their striped uniforms, bearing yellow stars and sometimes pinkish insignia, were baggy and hung in tatters from skeleton frames, yet each prisoner's appearance and demeanor displayed every vestige of dignity he could muster. No hangdogs, no whimpering, no complaining, no visible tears. They were beyond that, and above it.All of the author's proceeds from the sale of The Absolute Truth And Other Uncertainties-A Remembrance will be donated to the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital Foundation, Santa Barbara, California.

Book Description iUniverse, United States, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Absolute Truth And Other Uncertainties-A Remembrance chronicles the life of Fairfield Goodale, a New Englander who left Harvard to become a World War II fighter pilot but later returned to school to become a physician. Goodale was propelled into a successful medical career after a brief but intensely emotional experience in 1945 at the Buchenwald concentration camp in Germany. He was educated in pathology and research at Western Reserve, Massachusetts General Hospital, Oxford, and Harvard. As a researcher, he became fascinated with the relationship between dietary fat and atherosclerosis. Later, as Chairman of Pathology at the Medical College of Virginia, Goodale developed an interest in paleopatholgy, traveling to Peru to autopsy mummies and evaluate ancient dietary trends and atherosclerotic damage. He also promoted innovative medical curricula during his tenure as dean of two prominent medical schools. The Absolute Truth And Other Uncertainties-A Remembrance explores the philosophical insights and rich life experiences of this widely traveled veteran and medical educator. All of the author s proceeds from the sale of The Absolute Truth And Other Uncertainties-A Remembrance will be donated to the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital Foundation, Santa Barbara, California.
