My later father Felix A. Cizewski and the 45th Signal Company arrived at Feldmoching, Germany 67 years ago today. Feldmoching is on the northwest edge of Munich, less than 8 miles southeast of Dachau.
The day before Dachau was liberated by the 45th Infantry Division. From that location, the 45th Signal Company would be to assist in the care of the liberated survivors.
Dad was a very private and shy man. He said little about his service and nothing about Dachau.
Dad would embarrassed while quietly proud of my sharing of his service.
He would want me to be very clear that his role was that of support of the front line combat troops of the 45th who did the very hard work of defeating the SS guards to liberated Dachau.
