The information panels about the history of the US Army in Fuerth (Nurnberg Military Community) have now found an ideal permanent location for presentation:
The mess hall of the former Nurnberg American High School (now Hans-Boeckler-Schule).
  Mrs. Heinrichs, the vice principal of the school (left), Mrs. Koehler, the designer of the panels (in the middle) and I present the additional panels about the history of the school that have been designed  .

... a picture from the early 1960s. The school cafeteria, which served three meals a day, was at the far right of the building looking at it from the front. Lunch was available to all students; breakfast and supper was primarily for the dorm students.

Nuerberg High School now in use again
(Article: Fuerther Nachrichten - 25 Oct 2002)
After eight years and 10.3 Mio Euro renovation costs the "Hans-Böckler-Schule" (a middle school) moved into the building of the Nuernberg High School at Fronmuellerstrasse. This was celebrated by the officials on 24 October 2002.
The reasons for the enormous costs that were still half of a new school were different problems with the building. The highlight were underdimensioned ceilings that were built by German companies and certified by German authorities in the sixties. Today's authorities are still shocked what could have happened to the ten thousands of American students during the years passed. Now the area near Kalb Housing has become a school center again with a primary school, a middle school, a special education school and a public library.
