    Biography
    Winfield Rosenberg, a native of Lititz, PA, was a private in the United States Army assigned to the 106th Infantry Division during World War II. Initially, the United States War Department notified his parents the he was missing-in-action (MIA) on 16 Dec. 1944. In Mar. 1945, the War Department again notified his next-of-kin that he had became a prisoner of war during the "Battle of the Bulge." He was sent to Stalag IX-B at Bad Orb, Germany. Rosenberg said that in Feb. 1945 the commandant of the camp ordered "all American prisoners who were Jewish were to report to a certain barracks." What followed for Rosenberg and 349 other American prisoners of war was a transfer to Berga am Elster, a Buchenwald subcamp. At Berga, they were assigned to forced labor in the mines. Rosenberg was eventually liberated from a German hospital by units of the 90th Infantry Division. He lives in Lewes, Dela.
