Joseph K.

On September 1, 1939, German Nazi forces invaded the sovereign country of Poland. During the next 5 and one half years, the world witnessed some of the most horrific and barbaric misconduct man had ever perpetrated on other human beings.

On Sunday, the 6th of May,1945 (23rd of Iyyar, 5705), at only 17 years old, Norman Kamelgard was liberated from the concentration camp in Ebenze, Austria, becoming a Holocaust survivor.

Now 88 years of age, he lives in Baltimore, MD, with his wife of 62 years, Paulette. He is the father of two children (me and my sister), 5 grand children, and 3 great grand children.

On this, the 71st anniversary of his liberation, I am appealing to you to contribute to this very worthy cause.

Thank you & Shabbat Shalom,
Joe Kamelgard
