Dumpster hides Rohna history

In 2016, Tom Finn retrieved a batch of papers from a dumpster in Cincinnati, Ohio. After discovering these papers, Tom did some investigating and found that The Rohna Survivors Memorial Association would be holding a reunion at the Crowne Plaza in Dayton, so he drove to it with his son Nick, as they felt that the papers were too important to just be thrown away.

As it turns out, the collection includes more than 250 letters, photos and documents (over 1,000 pages total).

The Association was so grateful to them that they were invited to our 2017 reunion in Indianapolis. Here is a photograph of then President, Michael Walsh, with Tom Finn and his son Nick.
