May I introduce Myself? My name is Norbert and I am doing some researches on local history events of the area I'm living since late 1993 - escpecially under the focus of airwar. Nonetheless some sad stories of two villages around here (in spring 1945) managed the ignition for some serious overlooksover the fence of My favourite field of research.
The following short descripition may show what I am looking for:
On April 2nd 1945 a fierce battle between retreating units of 6. SS Gebirgsdivision Nord and US units took place in the vicintiy of Waechtersbach, destroying a lot of housings of the villages named Waldensberg and Leisenwald.
Anyone is able to confirm that the 11th was involved in this strange battle?
Every hint, wink, comment are as well appreciated as - perhaps - some photographs.
Thanks a lot and kind regards from Germany
