    17 Apr 2017 - Survival of the Holocaust and Dachau Concentration Camp - Benjamin Franklin - Legion Post 405 at the Union League announces a special historical program on Monday, April 17, 2017 at 6:00 pm at the Union League Mr. Ernie Gross survived the Holocaust and Dachau Concentration Camp and was liberated by US Army forces in April, 1945. Dachau Concentration Camp was the first of the Nazi concentration camps opened in Germany, intended to hold political prisoners. It is located on the grounds of an abandoned munitions factory northeast of the medieval town of Dachau, about 10 miles northwest of Munich in the state of Bavaria, in southern Germany. It opened in 1933 by Heinrich Himmler and was enlarged to include forced labor, and eventually, the imprisonment of Jews, German and Austrian criminals, and eventually foreign nationals from countries that Germany occupied or invaded. Among the liberators was Battle of the Bulge veteran Don Greenbaum of the US 7 Army, as a forward observer with the 283rd Field Artillery Battalion. These two ‘living historians’ will recount, in vivid detail, the horrors encountered at Dachau and their stories of survival. The History Channel has done an extensive documentary on their story and Mr. Gross and Mr. Greenbaum speak all over the country. These two AMERICAN TREASURES will be accompanied by Mr. Steven Gross and family members. American Legion Post #405 is truly blessed by the opportunity to witness history. All are welcome to attend – Civilians, Guests, Retired, Reserve & Active military. Dress code for men: Business attire. Please RSVP to: awaskie@temple.edu – Dr. Andy Waskie     - (click on event title for more info) ... Location of Event - Philadelphia Union League, 140 South Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA
