The World : Nazi, GI War Vets Meet

September 23, 1985

Despite criticism from Jewish leaders in the United States, 25 U.S. Army veterans and three former Nazi SS soldiers who fought against each other in the Battle of the Bulge in France in World War II were reunited at Frankfurt Airport, West Germany. The Americans called off their traditional get-together with the Germans at a French cemetery but planned to meet in the small Bavarian town of Bad Windsheim later in the week. The veterans of the U.S. 70th Infantry Division will visit the American military cemetery at St. Avold in northeastern France, where they fought the 6th SS Mountain Division. The veterans have met annually in the United States and Europe since 1976.
