Snapshot taken of a pair of Achilles Tank Destroyers passing through Alzheim in MArch 1945.

Captain Crunch was told by a native: "Thank heavens you're here! None of us were Nazis, you know. It was all that fellow Hitler's doing! I hope you won't be turning us over to the Russians?"

Sadly, Alzheim spent the next fifty-four years as part of East Germany.
