They Fight with Cameras: Walter Rosenblum in WWII from D-Day to Dachau
This event occurred in the past.
As a World War II U.S. Army combat photographer, Walter Rosenblum (1919-2006) landed on Omaha Beach on D-Day. Afterwards, the 5-man Signal Corps camera team of which he was a part was attached to various combat units fighting in France, Germany and Austria. At one point, he secured the surrender of armed German troops; at another, he took the first motion picture footage of the liberation of the Dachau concentration camp. Rosenblum was one of the most decorated WWII photographers, awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star, five battle stars, the Purple Heart, and a Presidential Unit Citation. They Fight with Cameras: Walter Rosenblum in WWII from D-Day to Dachau features 46 of Rosenblum’s wartime photographs, a wide selection of historic documents, personal mementos, and film clips. A version of this exhibition, curated by Manuela Fugenz, was presented at the U.S. Embassy’s Amerika Haus in Vienna Austria, and the gallery 10b Photography in Rome, Italy.
