Surviving the Holocaust & Defeating Nazi Germany: Two Men’s Testimonials

November 7, 2014, in the North Lounge.  The Holocaust testimony of two men: Holocaust Survivor:  Ernie Gross – In April 1944 at the age of 15 years old, Ernie and his family were deported to Auschwitz.  The Nazis forced Ernie and thousands of other inmates on a death march west towards Dachau.  On April 29, 1945 the American army liberated the camp. Holocaust Liberator:  Don Greenbaum – IN 1943, Don graduated from a military school and joined the American Army when he was 18 years old.  Don fought in the Battle of the Bulge.  He was under the direction of General George Patton’s Third Army, which rapidly advanced through Germany.  On April 29, 1945, Don and other troops from the Third Army were on their way to seize a German army supply depot but stumbled across the Dachau concentration camp.  That horrific day forever changed his life.
