One of the original members of of Wereth team and the man responsible for getting me involved with the project has passed away. Dr. Norman Lichtenfeld an eminent WWII historian and orthopedic surgeon died last week at the age of 65. He was a great man and very generous with his time and his knowledge of the massacre at Wereth. I can truthfully say that the Wereth film could not have been produced without his involvement and moreover he is the man who introduced me to Joseph Small the visionary producer of the film. So I just wanted to take this moment to share the sad news of his passing and I have included a here a clip of Norm speaking at the Wereth premiere in 2011 at the National WWII Museum in New Orleans. Norm, you will be greatly missed.
