MS-215: Emmanuel Ringelblum Collection


On September 13, 1978 Stephen Kahn interviewed Werner Becker about his life in before, during, and after World War II. In the beginning of this interview Werner discusses his early childhood and his family in Mecklenburg province in Germany. As the interview progresses Werner recounts how he intended to attend college in France but declined to enroll because he foresaw Jewish students being excluded from attending and completing college. Towards the end of the interview he recounts his time working in Algeria, later working for the British Army, and his eventual arrival in Dayton.
