This is the remains of a bridge which the American troops used to cross the Rhine in 1945. It collapsed killing 30 soldiers and has now become the site of a Peace Museum. There is a famous German film about this bridge.

The class teacher sports her 'peace' T-shirt and the student has a 'peace' scarf.

Farewell!
