Roger Cohen discusses his book, “Soldiers and Slaves.” He begins by discussing his time spent working in Berlin for the “New York Times” and how difficult it was for him as a Jewish man. He explains that the idea for the book came when he began to think about how Germans viewed the Holocaust. Cohen explores the history of the camp at Berga and whether it was actually a work camp or a concentration camp. He shares the stories of the American soldiers that were brought to Berga following the Battle of the Bulge. He goes on to discuss his research for the book and shares stories of interviewing survivors. Later in the interview he discusses the Guggenheim film on Berga.
