Sam Tannenbaum spoke to a group of seniors including several World War II veterans on the Spirit of '45 Day. Sam ended his presentation by saying that Private Henry Tannenbaum's great granddaughter Jayna (13 months old, living in Brooklyn, NY) and Jim Schlitz's great granddaughter Mira (10 months, living in Luxembourg) have a date to meet in Ottre. Belgium on August 15, 2045 to keep the Spirit of '45 alive. Jim Schlitz is the man who found Tony Vaccaro, the soldier who took the famous photo of Sam's Dad dead in the snow during the Battle of the Bulge. The audience laughed and cried.
