Re: ADDITION: 60-Minutes The Ritchie Boys #announcements #germany #usa


My father Otto Perl, was born and raised in Vienna, Austria, where he served in the Austrian Army prior to the Anschluss. He was a survivor of Dachau and Buchenwald Concentration Camps, and was also a Ritchie Boy. He fled to the UK in June 1939, and arrived in the USA in March 1940. He was assigned to Military Intelligence and Counter Intelligence at Camp Ritchie, Maryland. At the very end of this 60 Minutes program, his named appears in the credits. He donated a photograph of himself and other Ritchie Boys to the US Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC which appears in the program.
