Near the end of World War II, as Allied troops advanced across Europe, they came across concentration camps containing thousands of survivors. The troops freed the prisoners from the camps and provided them with food and medical supplies. Among the liberators of Dachau was Texas native Private First Class Henry Lee Maxey, a member of the 42nd Infantry Division. Sara Abosch-Jacobson, Barbara Rabin Chief Education Officer, and Anne Hanisch, Project Cataloger, discuss the experiences of liberators and feature selected artifacts from the Maxey Liberator Collection in the Museum’s archives. 


This program is part of the Museum's History Highlights series.
