LI man discovers trove of historic WWII Seder photos

A bit of lost Jewish history was rediscovered by a Great Neck man.



Michael Wienstock recently unearthed a collection of photos of a historic 1945 Passover Seder held for U.S. soldiers in Guam. The pictures were taken by his grandfather, Emanuel, an Army photographer during World War II.



More than 2,700 Jewish servicemen participated in the traditional holiday meal as Allied Forces were liberating German concentration camps in Europe.



Weinstock said it was difficult to even find a photo shop still able to develop the historic film.
