In Reply to: Forcum Name, What Nationality ? by Diana Truelove of 125

When my father RAY Forkum of TN. was a prisoner in a German concentration camp in WWII, THE German guard went down the line asking the Americans what their names were. If they didn't like the info they received the German tilted his head to one side and the soldier was shot. My dad said his name was Forkum, the German said good German name, tilted his head the other way and let him live.
