George Roth, physician and member of the Committee of Responsibility, talks with Elsa Knight Thompson. Roth had just returned from South Vietnam where he selected another group of war-injured children who will be given medical aid in the United States, as he discussed in a previous interview with Elsa Knight Thompson. Roth goes into detail in describing the chemical burns, amputations, and other traumatic physical ailments suffered by the civilian children of South Vietnam as a result of the war there. The program was originally aired in two parts: part one during the KPFA Marathon in May 1970; the second part during KPFA's open hour in June 1970; then broadcast in its complete form on August 6, 1970.
