The Art Mainzer Story

Arthur Mainzer was a loving husband to the late Germaine Girardot and a beloved father to Christiane and Claudette. He touched the lives of many and will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

Military History:

Born in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Canada, Arthur enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps in November 1942. He completed training with the first Motion Picture Unit in Culver City, California, and was deployed to England in November 1943. Arthur arrived in France shortly after D-Day and documented six military campaigns throughout the war. He was part of the first camera crew to film the liberation and atrocities at Buchenwald Concentration Camp in April 1945.

Point of Interest: Milo plucks out one of the best heroic stories from Steven Spielberg’s documentary “Shooting War,” a story she knows intimately, the one about her dad’s younger brother, Art, who became a combat movie cameraman in WWII. Milo captures the essence of her uncle’s two-fold, ultimate life experiences happening almost simultaneous…love vs hatred and faith vs despair

Honors My Uncle's Story

Arthur received several military awards for his actions during WWII, including the Air Medal, the EAME Campaign Medal with six battle stars, the World War I Victory Medal, and the Good Conduct Medal. In April 2010, he received a medal commemorating the 65th Anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi Death Camps. In November 2016, the French government awarded Arthur the prestigious Chevalier de la Legion d’Honneur medal for his military contributions in France.
