Here is a nice contribution to the topic "How  enemies became friends"

ROTHENBURG MOVIE PREMIERE: Members of the USAG Ansbach Community assisted in voicing the English version of a documentary created by Rothenburg students. The movie describes how U.S. Americans and Germans worked together in 1945 to save the city of Rothenburg from total destruction.
The first showing in the Wildbad resort near Rothenburg yesterday was attended by Col. Stephen Pierce and Command Sgt. Maj. Eric Bohannon, USAG Ansbach, as well as some of the volunteers who narrated the documentary.
The documentary will be made available to a larger audience later this year.
