hello i'm writing to tell you that i think that my grandfather's house was a heardquater to the 12th division. He lives 32,route de gambsheim in Herrlisheim. I met for one month an American historian who was taking a photo for my grandfather's house and he told me that it was an amercican headquarter in january 1945. You can see my grandfathers house in the 2713 division photo in the 43rd of the first picture there is a big house just behind the tank and the soldiers, my grandfather's house is just right on this big house.Can you tell me if it was realy an american headquarter??? please abd thank you

Hello Eric. I am writing you from Philadelphia,PA, USA. My father-in-law, who remains in good health, was in the first battle of Herrlesheim when he was captured and taken to Germany as prisoner of war. My husband and I are planning to visit Herrlesheim this very month and will gladly photograph your grandfather's house and then show these photos to my father-in-law to see if he recognizes it. The date we will be in Herrlesheim is 13 June.

Je parle francais (pas tres bien) donc je peut vous ecrire en francais. Si vous lisez cet email avant notre depart de chez nous le 11 juin vous pouvez me prendre contacte a rdesante@aol.com. Si non, notre hotel pres de Herrlesheim est a Strasbourg et s'appelle le Regent Petite France (tel. 88 76 43 43). Nous y arriverons l'apres-midi du 12 Juin et nous irons quiter Strasbourg le 14 Juin. Une visite tres breve.

J'espere que vous pouvons parler a vive voix. Je vous aurais ecrit il y a longtemps mais je viens de trouver votre message.

Sandra DeSante
