Ed Haider was an eager, patriotic, twenty year old when he enlisted in the airborne in April of 1942. As is all combat, his experience turned into a living nightmare, being taken a prisoner of war and living for almost two years in the hands of his German captors. Ed includes anecdotes, both serious and humorous, of daily life for the prisoners of war attached to the Stalag 2 B Schulenberg farm, work detail.
Visitors to the Minnesota's Greatest Generation exhibit at the History Center will be interested to learn that Mr. Haider was one of three paratroopers to survive the crash of the C-47 troop transport plane recreated in the exhibit.
