The Flag With Fifty-six StarsBook - 2005
On May 6, 1945, when members of the 11th Armored Division of the U.S. Army marched into the Mauthausen concentration camp, they were presented with an extraordinary gift. A group of prisoners, had surreptitiously pieced together a U.S. flag with an extra row of stars. Colonel Richard Seibel had the flag proudly flown over the camp as a symbol of freedom. This inspiring account of the liberation of one of the Third Reich's most infamous camps is a tribute to the humanity and hope preserved by the survivors.
