The Germans had a plan to blow up the Bordeaux port before they retreated toward the end of the war.

Approximately 4,000 fuses needed for the plan were stored in the Mediterranean city’s munitions depot. Salmide, then a junior officer in the German navy, defied his superiors and blew up the depot, rendering the fuses useless and saving the port, Moga said.

Hunted by the Gestapo and the French police, Salmide hid with Moga’s grandmother, becoming a family friend, the deputy mayor said.
