My late father, Felix A. Cizewski, visited Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest near Obersalzberg, Germany, south of Munich in the Bavarian Alps.

I can’t determine the exact date but it was sometime between the end of the war in Europe on May 8, 1945 and the movement of the 45th Infantry to Reims, France on July 15, 1045.

On our family history website is a copy of Felix’s tour map.


Ralph in Manila (undated, possibly September, 1945).

Meanwhile the other side of the world,  my late father-in-law, Ralph E. Robinson, on Landing Ship Medium 34 continued delivering supplies to troops in the Philippines and training with the Army for the invasion of Japan scheduled for about September, 1945, in about three months.
