60th Anniversary of Liberation: Gerald Schwab‘s photography

Dedication of the Library


In May, the Blue House exhibited photos of Breisach in its postwar state of destruction. Gerald Schwab (1925–2014) had visited his parents’ hometown in 1945 and 1946. He was one of several U.S. soldiers originating in Breisach who had fought to liberate Europe from the Nazis.


Gerald and Joan Schwab traveled from their home near Washington, D.C., for the exhibition opening.


The Blue House Library was inaugurated on the European Day of Jewish Culture.
