Parade Grand Marshal David S. Wisnia

Auschwitz Prisoner to 101st Airborne Trooper

Mr. Wisnia will be at Rooke Chapel, Bucknell University on Sunday, June 25th, 2017 at 2:00pm for a signing of his book, "One Voice, Two Lives." Doors open at 1:30pm.

"David S. Wisnia has a remarkable voice, and he uses it to tell his remarkable story. He is a survivor of Auschwitz Annihilation Camp where he was incarcerated for close to 3 years, saving his life by singing to entertain the Nazi SS and cell block leaders. Wisnia was transferred to Dachau in December 1944, surviving the Death March, and managing to escape. He was found and rescued by the American 101 Airborne Division. Joining with the 506th Parachute Infantry, he engaged actively in combat during the closing days of the war with Germany in 1945, becoming both a survivor and a liberator. David S. Wisnia continued singing in the United States and served as Cantor of Temple Shalom in Levittown, PA for 28 years."
