Atlanta, GA, June 09, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- It is incredible to think that Hans Baumgarten was part of a generation that experienced WWII. At age 10, Hans and his brother Peter were on the last Kindertransport that saved the lives of nearly 10,000 Jewish children from Nazi Germany. The Baumgarten family was able to reunite and immigrate to the United States where Hans joined the US Army when he turned 18 years of age.
With a sense of gratitude and loyalty to his new country, Hans joined the thousands of soldiers, ships, planes from the United States, Britain and Canada that surprised the Nazi forces on the beaches of Normandy. More than 4,000 Allied soldiers, most of them younger than 20 years old, as well as more than 4,000 German troops died in the invasion. Hans survived.
After the war, Hans was welcomed into the family business as a shipping clerk, and Hans' new wife Jean, a nurse during the war, took on marketing, sales strategy, and new product development.
"My father would have proudly celebrated his 95th birthday this year as witness to the 75th anniversary of D-Day," said David Baumgarten, EVP. "The devastation of war, the importance of democracy, freedom, independence, and patriotism are all a part of our history and have shaped our values as individuals and as a business."
Baumgartens is proud to offer American-made, built-to-last, quality flags for all the patriots who are commemorating D-Day, and America’s Independence Day this 4th of July.
