Liberator Vernon Tott of the 84th Infantry was honored by some of the survivors he helped free from the Ahlem labor camp near Hanover, Germany. Tott's name was engraved on the Museum's Donor's Lounge wall with the inscription: In honor of Vernon W. Tott, my liberator & hero. The ceremony in which Tott's name was unveiled came as a complete surprise to him. This photograph shows Sara J. Bloomfield (Director, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum), Vernon Tott, and Fred S. Zeidman (Chair, United States Holocaust Memorial Council) after the ceremony honoring Tott. Washington, DC, November 2003.
