Bobenthal, Germany

Are there any members of the Forum here from Bobenthal, Germany,
just over the border from French Alsace?

Attached is a photo from the NARA.

Caption reads:

"Two 45th Division infantrymen cover third infantryman cautiously
entering house in Bobenthal, Germany, in search of
enemy snipers. This is the first German town captured by troops
of this division.

"Co. I, 3rd Bn, 180th Regt., 45th Div., Bobenthal, Germany."

Date: 16 December 1944.

III-SC 271429, Credit NARA.

I'm curious if the house still exist.
