Herbert Breuer was born in Vienna Neustadt, Austria, in March 1924. When Hitler came to power, his father was taken to a concentration camp but released; the man and his sons fled to the U.S. in 1940, when Herb was 16. In 1942 at age 18, Breuer joined the U.S. Army as an engineer/tool-and-die maker under Gen. Patton, landing in Normandy three days after D-Day. He fought until the end of WWII, then used the G.I. Bill to become a photographer.
