The story of the exodus from Liebling (Auswanderung)

September 22, 1944

A first-hand recollection told by Konrad Schmidt at our September 2019 Meeting, marking the 75th Anniversary of the departure.

This video is courtesy of Michael Schaefer.  The very beginning of Mr. Schmidt's remarks were, unfortunately, not captured, but during nearly 9 minutes of the recording, you will hear about the trials and tribulations our parents, grandparents and relatives went through to escape the advancing Russian Army which eventually led to their settling in the USA.
