The hard decision of Mr Willy Kelner in 1944. General Patton’s tanks where not far from the Commognes. Willy and Marie Antoinette Kelner persuaded the Wehrmacht soldiers to laid down their arms and reassembled them near the church to give them food and tea. In the evening the Waffen SS Soldiers evacuated the Wehrmacht and take their place, After a few days of hard fighting the Waffen SS retreated. In the evening, I and all the people of Awagne rushed to the church to see Patton’s tanks entering Awagne. For me this was the end of the war.
