    Speech #1 Edward R. Murrow, a CBS reporter and war correspondent delivered a report from Buchenwald, Germany on April 16, 1945. He delivered this dialect upon seeing the atrocities committed by the Germans towards the Jews. He addresses the American people, describing the scene he had witnessed at this labor camp, which he found the scene to be so unbelievable that he is rendered speechless many times through out his speech. Murrow’s outrage is so apparent through-out his account, that it is even felt by the audience, making it an emotive speech.

An example is when he describes the courtyard of Buchenwald. “…We proceeded to the small courtyard. The wall was about eight feet high…. We entered. It was floored with concrete.” These type of sentences are found through-out his entire account, intensifying the emotions of his audience.…
