I'm Canadian now, but served in the British Infantry (49th Polar Bear Division) next to the Canadians during WW2, wounded at Arnheim, rejoined unit occupying Germany. Born a German Jew, I escaped to England on a Kindertransport in 1939. I volunteered, at 17, to liberate Europe from Fascism.

The Memory Project includes a community of over 1,500 veterans and Canadian Forces members who are committed to sharing their stories of service.
