Linda Rader Overman considers Henry Oster, a hero, as he recalls Buchenwald horrors at 70th anniversary

Henry Oster recalls Buchenwald horror

This amazing man and retired Beverly Hills optometrist spoke at CSUN this spring.  He provided a living history of his experiences at Buchenwald where he was held for approximately several years under the Nazi killing machine.  He survived to tell his tale and honored his family and fellow survivors.  Those from Cologne now dead except for Dr. Oster who will never forget.

He stated: "What I see here, where the barracks used to be, at every barrack there was a pile of dead bodies, this is in your memory forever," Oster said. "When someone asks how Buchenwald was, you immediately see the dead bodies again."
