HOUSTON — Birney “Chick” Havey remembers rolling up to the Dachau concentration camp in Germany in April 1945. It was near the end of World War II, just days before Germany would surrender, and he and his Army comrades had arrived in tanks to liberate the camp’s prisoners. The Houston Chronicle reports for nearly 75 years, Havey has lived with what he saw that day — the piles of dead bodies, the “walking skeletons” who had survived, the overwhelming smell of death and defecation, sickness and rot. Havey, who lives in Seabrook, and 35 other Texas veterans were honored Thursday at Holocaust Museum Houston for rescuing prisoners. By Alyson Ward, Houston Chronicle. SENT: 1,200 words, pursuing photos.
