    Overview

    Description
    The thirteen page report was written by Dr. Fritz (Fred) Linnenbuerger (1873-1967) and chronicles his trip to Germany in the late summer of 1939. Linnenbuerger, a resident of Ashley, North Dakota, had immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1896. In 1939 Linnenbuerger was among nearly 70 German-Americans who had been invited to tour Germany by the German Teacher's Association. Among other tours and meetings the group was brought to view the Buchenwald concentration camp. This encounter is documented in the report and was included in a November 1939 article of the Dakota Freie Presse (Dakota Free Press), a paper to which Linnenbuerger was a frequent contributor.
