"Moser said he believed he was days away from death when salvation came in an unlikely form. A group of the allied pilots' sworn enemies -- the Luftwaffe -- was touring Buchenwald. When they saw their fellow aviators' condition, the German pilots demanded that the Allies be sent to a prisoner-of-war camp."

Interesting... The Lufwaffe veterans are always banging on about how they were all just good Germans who were "deceived" by the Nazis. Curious to know what they were doing on guided tours of concentration camps.

Just like the 'good' Russians who escaped back to their lines 'to fight again', only to be imprisoned in Stalin's own 'concentration camps'. !! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

If they were deceived and thought the Concentration Camps were only prisons for really bad people then that visit would make as much sense as USAAF officers touring Alcatraz Prison during WWII; donít they have something better to do?
