Verdun, France
A Synagogue, a Protestant Church, a Catholic Church
07 Verdun, France - Shards

“A light rain muddied the streets as we entered the ancient fortress town of Verdun on September 18, 1944. We saw a shattered synagogue by the north gate. Later we found a modest cathedral on a hillside. I got a few pieces of glass from each. The synagogue was opened up and our rear headquarters remained there for six months. There was also a small Protestant chapel that we used for choir practice.”
