Liberating Dachau Concentration Camp ~ an evening talk and discussion about the Holocaust by a soldier of the 20th Armored Division Reverend E. T. Holland

Lest we forget in this 21st Century world with its own atrocities, the Holocaust will be recounted through the descriptions of a World War II soldier of the Twentieth Armored Division. On Thursday, March 30, come to the Gilman Center for International Education, Library Room 130 at 7 p.m. for an evening talk with discussion by Reverend E.T. Holland, “Liberating Dachau Concentration Camp.”

Holland was 21 with the rank of corporal when he and his fellow soldiers entered Dachau Concentration Camp. It was Liberation Day as they witnessed human beings who were “75 pound walking skeletons” and the “crematorium going full force.”

During the program, Rev. Holland will explain how “April 30th, 1945 was really the worst day of my life.” His firsthand account will be an eye-opener to some and a horrible reminder to others. Even though it is difficult for him to share his Holocaust story, he feels it is necessary to do so.

The presentation is free and open to the public. A reception will follow which signifies the opening of the exhibit, “The Holocaust ~ Reflections on War and Remembering the Atrocities,” details of which are forthcoming.

This lecture is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Committee for Institutional Diversity and Equity [CIDE], the Global Studies Department, and Cultural Affairs to which questions may be directed (845) 341-4891 or Information is available through the website at
