4:00 – A Veteran POW’s Story of Surviving Nuremberg
Francis Kravetz was born October 25, 1923, in East Pittsburgh, near the Westinghouse plant that provided income and aspiration for an entire community. Every morning he shoveled soot that drifted onto the porch from the steel mill. But then war came. Frank enlisted in the Army Air Corps. If he was going to help Uncle Sam beat the Nazis, he would do it from an airplane—and he did it very well, as a tail-gunner. Frank is here to tell us how he ended up as a captive of the “hell-hole” that was Nuremberg as a wounded POW scratching for survival.
