I was answering Davy's statementHarro wrote:Knittel "and his boys" - when not taking cover for Allied airraids - were in constant battle with the 30th US Inf.Div. So why your conclusion that they were "quite busy to kill unarmed civilians"? That makes absolutely no sense at all.
the murders in Stavelot was not for Kampfgruppe Peiper, but from Schnelle gruppe Knittel, a unit of the SS.AA.1
I was answering this post by TonyHarro wrote:This topic is about 130 civilians in Stavelot. Not about the Malmédy massacre or Hitler in the KZ Lager.
We can say the following:tonyh wrote:He never admitted guilt for any of the charges and in fact was nowhere near Malmedy when the shootings occured.
We know that between 93 and 130 Belgian civilians were shot on December, 18, 1944.
We know that neither Knittel nor Hansen were in situation to do it.
We know that Peiper was.
We know that among the charges against him, Stavelot was there.
So... Tell me Harro, are you suggesting that the Stavelot massacre did not took place?
