Join Nathan Huegen, Director of Educational Travel, and filmmaker Lou Baczewski in a discussion of the documentary film by Baczewski entitled Path to the Past. This film is the incredible TRUE story of Louis "Louch" Baczewski. One tank division's journey against all odds and what may be the sadly unacknowledged true story behind the 2014 film Fury. Based on the 2013 book Louch, Path of the Past follows the harrowing journey of the only documented American tank crew to survive together from Normandy, France into Germany itself and in the same Sherman tank. As part of the US 3rd Armored Division, Louch fought through all five Major Campaigns of the European Theater of Operations, survived the Battle of Normandy, the Battle of Falaise, the Battle of Mons, The Hurtgen Forest, The Battle of the Bulge, fought Hitler's SS Own Division, and helped liberate Dora-Mittelbau concentration camp and V2 missile factory.
