Wine Lecture: Save the Last Bullet

Jun 20, 2024

Join the Coronado Historical Association for our final Wine & Lecture this Spring, Save the Last Bullet. Heidi Langbein-Allen’s father, Willi Langbein, was thirteen when the Nazis took him away from his parents under the pretense of protecting him. The real reason was to mold him into cannon-fodder for use against the Russian army. Willi was sent to the Eastern Front at age fourteen in the last days of the war to stave off the advance of the Russians. Neither he nor his classmates We expected to return alive from the final battles of the Third Reich.   

Having survived the war against all odds, Willi returned home to find everything he knew destroyed. Numb and confused, he was mandated to serve one year of forced farm labor, putting his life on hold.
