Welcome to Episode 29 of the Voices to Veterans podcast. This episode features the story of 1st Lieutenant Henry Lowenstern, U.S. Army.
Henry served in the Army during World War II and has a truly amazing story. He and his family escaped from persecution in Nazi Germany in 1937 and came to the United States. Henry and his brother, Leon, then returned to Germany in 1945 as part of the victorious U.S. Army. After Germany surrendered, Henry spent two years interrogating POWs and German officials to help hold them accountable for war crimes and crimes against humanity. His incredibly inspiring story is one everyone should hear.
