Rothenburg is Germany's  best preserved walled town thanks to a picture of the city that hung in the house of a boy named John McCloy.  His Mom visited Rothenburg in the early 1900s and told him about its beauty and historical significance.  As fate would have it  years later US General John McCloy called off an air raid over Rothenburg during WWII and elected to negotiate the surrender of the town saving it from destruction all thanks to his Mom.
