Why Wasn't Auschwitz Bombed? Webcast on Monday, April 18
The University of Cincinnati College of Law is honored to host Military Action for Humanitarian Needs:Why Wasn't Auschwitz Bombed?
Live webcast on Monday, April 18, 2005, starting at 12:30 p.m.
Senator George McGovern, acclaimed humanitarian, is also a decorated WWII B-24 bomber pilot who flew 35 missions over Poland and Germany. He never received orders to target the gas chambers or railroad tracks to Auschwitz.
Werner Coppel and Anna Ornstein were teenage prisoners in Auschwitz while Allied forces held the skies in 1944. They dreamed for the pilots to notice them, to stop the trains, to stop the gas chambers, to show that they cared about the mass murder.
For the first time in public, in this ground-breaking meeting between WWII war hero and Holocaust survivors, they will explore the many questions about the possibilities of the bombing of Auschwitz.
