The Kutztown Area Patriot - - OBITUARIES - —Do­minick Pizze­lanti

I am a stu­dent at Kutz­town Area Mid­dle School and I am con­duct­ing re­search for Na­tional His­tory Day, a year long com­pe­ti­tion in which stu­dents se­lect a topic re­lated to the an­nual theme and cre­ate a pro­ject based on their re­search. This year’s theme is “Tak­ing a Stand in His­tory” and my topic is the Ger­man-Amer­i­can Bund, which was a group ac­tive in this area dur­ing WW II.

The leader was Fritz Kuhn, who was ar­rested in 1939 at Sch­lenker’s Esso Sta­tion along Old Route 22. I am ask­ing your read­ers if they know any­body in the area who was a mem­ber of the Bund, re­mem­bers the ex­is­tence of the Bund, or at­tended one of the youth camps in the area. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the Ger­man-Amer­i­can Bund should please con­tact me at kutz­townnhd@gmail.com. In ad­vance, thank you for your time and con­sid­er­a­tion. I look for­ward to hear­ing from you soon!
