From the Publisher:

Agony of Survival is a 1945 chronicle of a young lieutenant in the United States Army in postwar Germany. Caught in an emotional maelstrom of half-starved emaciated survivors of the concentration camps, he was charged with the responsibility for the care and repatriation of displaced persons in his area. The governments of the United States, Britain, and France helped but not always enthusiastically. The Jewish survivors of the concentration camps had also to survive the continuing anti-Semitism of some of the allied officers and enlisted men as well as other displaced persons. The world had changed but not the old attitudes and prejudices. Following V-E Day and knowing little about the horrors of the Holocaust, newly arrived officials replaced veterans of the war. Hutler faced both the disinterest and insensitivity of some of those officials but was remarkably successful as a conciliator, later earning the appreciation of General Eisenhower and Dean Earl Harrison, President Truman's investigative deputy.
