LEESBURG, Fla. (AP) - Two former World War II soldiers say they want to share their memories of liberating German concentration camps to make sure the Holocaust is never forgotten or denied.

The men recently shared their memories with the Daily Commercial newspaper in Leesburg and plan to speak later this month at an event commemorating the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the camps.

Patrick Marci, 87, says he has never forgotten the images and the smells from a camp near Landsberg, Germany, that he helped to liberate. Marci is a veteran of the Normandy invasion and the Battle of the Bulge.

Bill Whipp helped to liberate the Dachau camp. He said liberating the camps made the war worthwhile.
