Your “uncle” couldn’t have been “...part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps” as it was freed by the Soviets in mid-January 1945. Patton’s Third Army was still engaged in the Battle of the Bulge at that time. A pretty egregious gaffe, I’d say. Very sloppy.
Naturally, the wingnuts are all over this. SDA seems strangely MIA… probably just late to the party. Get with it there, Kate!
Note: Video is rare Russian footage of the liberation of Auschwitz with German narration.
Update: The quote in question (better audio than some clips floating around).
