I am sad to hear about the passing of Erwin. It was a mitzvah to meet and interview him about his war service which was included in a recently published book about Jewish GIs guarding German POWs in the US during WWII. It was an honors to give him a copy of the book several weeks ago. May his memory forever be a blessing.
