Aloisius Joseph Muench was born on February 18, 1889 in North Dakota. He died on Feb 15, 1962 (age 72). The most senior Roman Catholic official serving on the side of the Allies while Germany was under Allied occupation was an American prelate of the Roman Catholic Church.
After completing his studies in theology in Europe, he was given the position of bishop of Fargo, which is located in North Dakota. When he was appointed to the position of apostolic visitor to Germany, he immediately released a letter of 10,000 words in which he claimed, among other things, that the culpability for the Holocaust rested with a select group of high-ranking German officials. He was raised in a home where German was the only language spoken while he was growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
