    Host Andrew Hiller talks with Bernard Storch, who was born in Poland on November 10, 1922. He had four brothers, one of whom died of tuberculosis at the age of 11. Though anti-semitism was a factor in pre-war Poland, Storch says he was sheltered from it and had a mostly happy childhood. He was the son of a World War I vet, his hero, who served between 1914-18. He came to the United States on April 27, 1947, but before that he went through quite an odyssey.

    Storch wore many faces during the war: labor camp prisoner, soldier, artilleryman, and finally liberator, as his unit was sent in to free the camps where many of his fellow Jews were exterminated.
