My Dad Ray Dudones C/301FA, was with the 94th from Sep 1944 through June 1946. He served as a BAR infantryman. Before he passed away in 1993, he told me several stories of his experiences in Europe during the war.
1.) One incident was the liberation of a concentration camp - in either Czechoslovakia or perhaps Bavaria. This would have been in the spring of '45. Can anyone recall the name and location of such a camp?
2.) Another incident was in Czechoslovakia - they had liberated a town and the local people rounded up Nazi collaborators - men and women - and hung them in the town square.
3.) A third incident was of the discovery of masses of bodies in a railway tunnel. Locals said these people were from a camp, and as the Americans closed in, the Nazis took these prisoners, put them in the tunnel, and blocked off the ends. Then they blew up a dam which flooded the tunnel killing the prisoners. The Americans rounded up locals to drag out the bodies and bury them in a mass grave.
Hope you can help me make a connection through the web site.

If anyone can verify or perhaps add anything to these incidents I would appreciate the help.
I also have several photos taken in the spring of 1945, I believe they are in Bavaria at or near Sonthofen Germany.
