During World War II I was a resident of Koblenz-Pfaffendorf, walking-distance away from where the bomb was found. I am 81 years old now and remember all the air raids with horror. It is a memory that has shaped my life with hate for war. No citizen should be exposed to the daily fear of losing ones life. I want to express my deep admiration for the people involved in defusing the bombs. It was a herculean task with disregard for own safety. I am relieved all went well and hope that further discoveries will be handled with equal expertise.Congratulations, Koblenz
