True Story of a Hero

Captured by Nazis and released by the Almighty

Live Interview with Mr. Harry Callan, the last standing Survivor of Bunker Valentin.

He is witness to a time from which witnesses have become rare. As a 17-year-old in 1941, Harry Callan, a cook’s apprentice from Northern Ireland, is taken prisoner by the Germans and spends most of his captivity in the concentration camp in Bremen-Farge. His capture, his resistance, and his liberation are described impressively in the book “Forgotten Hero of Bunker Valentin: The Harry Callan Story,” which he present to the library of Jacobs University on Thursday, April 27th, starting at 12:30 p.m. as part of a special ceremony.
