The first German city to fall to American forces was Aachen. There, a service was held by Jewish GIs that was broadcast in Germany and around the world by the National Broadcasting Company. Max Fuchs, an infantryman, volunteered to sing as the cantor, and he recalls his experience that day as they gathered to remember the fallen.
