The March Generations After meeting will feature Holocaust survivor Werner Salingner.
Werner Salinger was born in Berlin, Germany in 1932. As a child, he experienced Nazi racial oppression and the violence of Kristallnacht.
On Jan. 12, 1939, his family fled Europe and arrived in the United States aboard the HollandAmerica ship ms Zaandam. Their immigration was made possible by movie mogul Carl Laemmle.
Twelve years later, Werner arrived back in Germany as a USAF Intelligence officer (NCO), where his job was to interrogate former German POW’s who had recently returned from Russia. While in Germany, he fell in love with his wife, Martha, the daughter of a Nazi family.
