The following is a text version of Rabbi Dana Saroken's Rosh Hashanah (5780) sermon:

It was 1945 when Rabbi Robert Marcus was sent to Europe as a chaplain. He was an American rabbi, lawyer, and activist, and he had enlisted to be a part of the war efforts. World War II was coming to an end, and Rabbi Marcus was sent in. He was among the first people to walk through the gates on the day of Buchenwald's liberation.
