“Unlikely Liberators” is the remarkable story of the 522nd Field Artillery Battalion and the liberation of the Dachau death march.

The Kauai Veterans’ Center is sponsoring an exhibit by the Nisei Veteran’s Legacy. The exhibit will run from September 5 through 27. The exhibit was curated by military historian Eric Saul and documents the encounters between Dachau prisoners and Nisei soldiers of the 522nd Field Artillery Batallion. The 522nd was part of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, a segregated unit made up primarily of Americans of Japanese descent. The 442nd was the most decorated unit in World War II.
