Germans, now alongside Allies, honor D-Day victims

German World War II and D-Day veteran Paul Golz, of Koenigswinter, Germany is one of a few German veterans who plans to attend this week's events marking the 70th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. He recalls the generosity of an Allied soldier in Normandy and his luck at being taken prisoner by Americans instead of being sent to fight on the eastern front.
