American soldiers of the U.S. military were located all over Bavaria to strengthen their presence against a communist regime after World War II. Many Americans stayed in Germany with their family members where they mingled with the German population, integrated American culture in the street life and helped to leave economic, social and institutional traces behind to build up a German- American relationship. But what is happening with our commemoration of Americans stationed in our area when structures should be demolished and the land which was home to 10.000 Americans is repurposed?
