Max Fuchs was one of about 50 troops who gathered for a historic religious ceremony while on Nazi soil during World War II. He went on to study music on the GI Bill, later working as a cantor and diamond cutter in Manhattan. He died this week at age 96. Sunday TODAY’s Willie Geist remembers a life well lived.
