Two families with an extraordinary WWII bond finally meet

A satchel carrying a story that started in World War II has a Kiwi and German connection. 

Two families have been linked for nearly a century, but have never met.

In Libya 1941, a Kiwi soldier named Walter came across a German soldier named Edi.

Edi looked to his enemy and held something out and asked Walter 'can you give this bag to my family?'

Seventy-three years later, the two families have been united on Three's The Project.
