Dear Sir: I checked on the left hand column, and saw
videos containing interviews of veterans who helped liberate
the Kaufering camps. The name of the camp Erpfting (spelling?) is not specifically mentioned. I do know that the
12th armored was in some of the camps, including Landsberg, and I believe camp IV. The following men were interviewed: Brad Dressler (23d Tank Battalion),

the Unit Rep to the Hellcat News for information on any men from his Battalion who are still living.

Paul Lozden 23d Tank Battalion: Contact Brad Dresslerl

Sid Brickel: 92nd Recon. Contact Bob Payne:

Finally, Joe Hausner was a prisoner who was liberated by
the 12th Armored. I believe he was in camp IV and he was liberated in Landsberg. I will send his phone number
