MS Palatia catastrophy

Post by Nabucco » 17 Oct 2020 20:17

Hello, I am looking for the sourse of the following statment that is on Wikipedia:
"After the incident the crew of Palatia was criticized in German reports for not having conducted the evacuation of the ship in an orderly manner, the sinking thus costing more German lives than might have been the case had the crew acted according to regulations."
What kind of German reports? Where are those reports? Have enyone on the forum any information about those reports? I would be very grateful for any answers.

Hi Nabucco

Though the link attributed to the above sentence (Note5) is no longer active, the parent link.
So maybe try them and they can point you in the right direction

Best of luck
