Born and raised in New York City, Milton Norman enlisted in the Army in 1943. Assigned to the 94th Infantry Division, he was participating in a six-man patrol in January 1945 when he and his fellow soldiers encountered a larger German force. He was captured, and spent two months in Stalag 12A near Limberg and Stalag 9B outside Bad Orb. After the war, he practiced law while also serving as a JAG in the Army Reserve, retiring with the rank of colonel. In this interview, he discusses his childhood during the Great Depression, his transition into Army life, his operational experiences in Europe, his capture and interrogation, everyday life in a German POW camp, the anxiety he felt as a Jewish prisoner, his liberation by American forces in April 1945, and his post-war career as a lawyer and Army Reservist.
