What's happening at the Museum?
World War II Warriors is the remarkable story of a young man who was separated from his family at sixteen and whose World War II odyssey took him from Poland to a Siberian labor camp to the battlefields of the eastern front. That journey brought him face to face with the horrors of the Holocaust–as one of the first allied soldiers to enter a death camp, he witnessed firsthand Hitler's Final Solution, not yet realizing that almost his entire family had fallen victim to that awful fate.
Bernhard Storch was born in Bochnia, Poland. Sent to Glee the oncoming German invasion, he ended up in a Soviet labor camp. He subsequently enlisted in a Plush division that fought its way from the USSR through Poland to Berlin itself. Having survived more than two years of combat, he married, moved to the U.S. and built a life there. Retired, today he lives in Nyack, New York where he is active in veterans' groups and Holocaust memorial organizations. He speaks frequently to student and community groups.

New Museum Signage
Thanks to a contribution by PDC Sid Lichter and family and the enduring efforts of PAP Iris Goldwasser, Development Chair, the NMAJMH has an official outdoor sign. The sign committee orchestrated by Christy Turner, graphics, Nikki Saltzman, JWV Programs, Pam Elbe and Mike Rugel, Museum Collections, expertly invested their time and interest into the creation of this banner. And with the help of EPI Colorspace who created the final production, the museum now has a vivid "face" to entice those who walk past its doors to come in.
