Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains two copies of one letter, handwritten and typed transcription, from Cpl. Irving Adler, USA to his parents during the Second World War discussing his experience of liberating the Buchenwald concentration camp in Germany.
Corporal Irving Adler, United States Army (b. 12/4/1924) was born in Queens, New York and attended high school at Brooklyn Tech. It can be inferred from his letter to his parents that he is of Jewish ancestry. He was drafted into the Army after high school and served in the European Theater of Operations in Belgium and Luxembourg, participating in the Battle of the Bulge. He then went to Germany as a Corporal and saw the concentration camp at Buchenwald. He was honorably discharged in 1946.
