Zillhausen

October 09, 2022

We recently stayed in Germany near the village of Zillhausen where Bill’s Lancaster was shot down.  We visited the memorial to Bill and his crew.  In the 1940’s the whole area was fields and forest but now there are houses lining the small road that leads to the fields where the memorial stands.     Every year we visit the memorial and leave flowers always including seven roses, one for each member of the crew.   Standing there we reflect how today, yet again, one country has invaded another and how valiantly the fight for freedom continues.
