Sixty-seven years ago today, after a battle with the SS guards the combat units of the 45th Division liberated Dachau concentration camp.
My late father, Felix A. Cizewski, was in the 45th Signal Company on the road towards Dachau. The company arrived the next day.
He never spoke of his experiences.
As he was bi-lingual English-Polish, he may have been called upon to assist in the care for the about 8,900 Polish speaking survivors.
My late father never spoke of his experiences at Dachau.
