Hello Phillip,

Perhaps Newton Dilley or Ed Pierce may be able to help. They were near there at the time. I will look through some
records as well. As you know, the 56th was
in or near Herrlisheim, near Strassburg.

Newton Dilley's email:

PS May I ask whether a relative of yours was wounded or killed at that time?

Hi Phil, Go to BOOKS AND WRITTEN EXPERIENCES
on the left column. Click on HISTORY OF THE
56TH AIB. Go to Appendix I (reconstructed by Billy Black a few years ago and Appendix II written in 1945 by Joe Lapic).

Billy Black says:

Traveled from Lindre- Basse to Kurtzenheuser to Bischwiller.

Kurtzenheuser is listed by Joe Lapic.

Kurtenheuser is about 31 miles from Bischwiller.

The way these two sources are written, I would guess that Kurtzenheuser is the answer to your question.
