The Holocaust Speaker’s Bureau is holding a special event to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. It is on Monday, January 26, from 7 to 8 pm at The Cedars of Chapel Hill Retirement Community, Cedar Berry Lane, Chapel Hill, NC 27517.
The event is in the ballroom where the will be a 30-minute historical video and reflections by several speakers.
Robert Patton, former post adjutant, frequently attended local holocaust events as his army unit, the 65th Division, Third Army, liberated a concentration camp at Mauthausen. It was through his efforts that an unmarked mass grave was identified and a memorial placed to remember those interred in the unmarked site. Let’s honor Robert’s memory by attending this event.
