The book Slaughter House Five is a real quick read and an interesting anti-war book, which gets its name from the location where Billy was housed; the Slaughter house with the 5 above the door. Some of the buildings in the area would have been seen by Kurt as he was put to work before and after the incident.
In the book Billy jumps around in time to both the bizzare (He is kidnapped by extraterrestrial aliens from the planet Tralfamadore. They exhibit him in a zoo) and realistic (in captivity in Dresden and in the War).
Some of the pictures I took are from early February the time of year when Kurt was in “Slaughter house 5” right before the bombing (taken precisely 65 years after the event):
