Leo Goldberg: The enemy
Seeing wounded American soldiers changed his mind about "the enemy."
Interview outtakes from THE WAR:
"That hurt. That hurt. The...that was when war really meant something. OK. You asked me what, how I felt about the German soldiers, and I felt nothing about them. But this, this was different. This was different. These were our boys. And, uh, it hurt to see some of them in the conditions that they were in. I happened to come into a field hospital. And it was bad. You know it was bad to see what there was. I didn't see how they got hurt, but I saw the remains, and it was not nice. And that's when I, I guess I started to really hate, and I said, 'I've got an enemy.' "
