About Henry Greenbaum 2

Henry Greenbaum (Chuna Grynbaum)...

This is Chuna's story after Liberation: After liberation, Henry began to search for his family. In Bergen-Belsen he found the cousin who had cared for him after he was shot. The cousin subsequently returned to Poland, where she found Henry’s brother Zachary, who had been imprisoned in the Vilna ghetto and told him where he could find Henry. Once the brothers were reunited, they sent a telegram to their sister Dina in the United States, letting her know they had survived and settled at the Zeilsheim displaced persons camp, near Frankfurt, until she was able to arrange for their immigration. In the summer of 1946 Henry and Zachary arrived in New York, where they were met by their brother David. Of his immediate family, only Henry, his two brothers, and his sister Dina survived the Holocaust.Henry and his late wife, Shirley, settled in Bethesda, Maryland. They have four children, twelve grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. Today Henry serves as a volunteer at the Museum, sharing his story with visitors and looks as young as me.
