Join Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust for a conversation with Dachau survivor Ernie Gross and Dachau liberator Don Greenbaum.
Ernie Gross was born in 1929 in Turtz, Romania. In 1944 he and his family were deported to a ghetto and then to Auschwitz, where Ernie’s parents and younger siblings perished. In 1945 he was sent to Dachau, where he was liberated by American troops on April 29, 1945.
One of those American soldiers was Don Greenbaum, who served in World War II as a forward observer, operating on the front lines. Don earned a Purple Heart in Germany on Nov. 9, 1944, and after his release from an army hospital, fought in the Battle of the Bulge. Under the command of General George Patton's Third Army, his division was among the first Americans to liberate Dachau.
More than 60 years later, Ernie and Don met in Philadelphia, where they both live.
