German town WWII #general


Foodphile@...
 

My father told me he was a staff sergeant in the army during WWII and that
in 1945 they took over the German town of "Mockmuchl." Since I find no
listing anywhere of this town, I have to assume that the spelling is
incorrect. If anyone has heard of a town which sounds close to this name,
I would appreciate it very much if you could enlighten me. I wonder if
there is a website with detailed history of our troop maneuvers and
occupied towns during WWII? Thanks!

Most likely you are looking for Mockmuhl (sometimes transcribed
Moeckmuehl; both vowels are umlauts). Shtetlseeker (at
http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/loctown.htm ) will locate it
under 'Mockmuhl' and provides a link to a map server for this area.

I think it might be Mo'chmu'hl in Baden Wuertenburg --
it's north of Heilbron.
