Images from April 2, 1945, at Ittenbach, Germany, of the burial of Major General Maurice Rose, who was killed in action on March 30, 1945, in the advance on Paderborn, Germany. Also included is a still photo of his parents, Rabbi Samuel Rose and Katherine Rose, at their home in Denver, Colorado, after learning of his death. Gen. Rose, only 45 years old at the time, had led his 3rd Armored "Spearhead" Division through France and Belgium, and then becoming the first Allied ground force to invade German soil in WWII. Later in 1945, his body was re-interned in Margraten, The Netherlands, as all American servicemen buried in Germany were re-interned to Allied countries by order of the Army.

    Capture of Cologne - 1945 video. My father, Bert Snelling was in the 3rd tank that entered this city. I don't know if he was one who lost a tank here or not. Does anyone have any information about this video?
