I have a violin, which my father took out of an abandoned chateau in Remagen, during WWII. Do you know of any family members looking for its return?

My dad was there that day! He was 3rd Army Infantry under Patton. I have since visted this sight and there is still an American flag flying high over it's ruins! HEROS! EVERYONE OF THEM!

sorry, i entered the wrong name, his grandfather's name was gilbert albert menix, george was his other grandfather's name, he too was in the war as was a lot of other people's grandfathers, except he was a paratrooper.

I believe that the third guy from the left in the foreground is my dad, Roland Quental.
I know that he was there.
