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
