1st Air Cavalry Brigade to host Holocaust survivor for Days of Remembrance event
FORT HOOD (Now designated Fort Cavazos), Texas — The 1st Air Cavalry Brigade will host an equal opportunity event on Thursday, April 11 at 1:30 p.m. at the Phantom Warrior Center featuring Max Glauben, a Holocaust survivor.
After the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943, he and his family were moved to the Madjanek Gas Chambers. There they were separated, and only Max survived. He was liberated in April 1945 by the U.S. Army while on a death march.
In 1947, he emigrated to the US. Max was drafted for two years into the U.S. Army during the Korean War and had a connection with Fort Hood (Now designated Fort Cavazos), where he attended basic training. In 1953, he moved to Dallas and began to build a life for himself.
As a witness to the horrors of injustice and one of the greatest persecutions in modern history, Max Glauben has maintained an active life dedicated to the subject. He tries to use his experience as a teaching aid for younger generations.
Media attending this event will meet with Maj. Paul M. Oliver at the media parking area at T.J. Mills Blvd Main Gate no later than Thursday, April 11 at 12:00 p.m. for escort to the event and interview.
