State Legislature Commendation for Curtis Whiteway, WWII Veteran of Craftsbury, Vermont

Representative Vicki Strong reads and presents a Vermont Legislature
commendation to World War II veteran, historian, author and educator,
and Craftsbury community member, Curtis Whiteway for his years of service to our country.

Sargeant Whiteway’s distinguished service as a combat infantry soldier included fighting in the Battle of the Bulge and at the end of the war later liberating concentration camps. Like many men who had survived the horrors of the war, it took many years before he could talk about what he had experienced. By then he had done years of research to understand what he had witnessed. He provided testimony to Congressional committees and to the organization that sought to establish a Holocaust remembrance museum in Washington, DC. He also spent years traveling to schools and community centers around the country to tell what he had seen in the war. He wanted to be sure no one would forget how intolerance and prejudice could grow into highly organized, sophisticated, and barbaric genocide.

Mr. Whiteway is 93 years old and thus it was decided to awarding the commendation locally.
