"Girlfriend of Unteroffizier Richard Eiermann, Unteroffizier in the 65. Panzer-Abteilung" was the caption to the photo. Apart from the uncertain physical resemblance there is no evidence that this lady would have been in Czechoslovakia at all. The photo just happens to be on the internet.

Looking at all the facial 'tell' points between images I say the probability of it being the same woman is very high.

This was a good act to add to memory and to research the history. I salute you both.

Dear Forum,

Some days ago, while travelling on a bus in Buenos Aires I observed a tourist girl in her 20´s who very closely resembled LGG. She was actually Austrian, born in Salzburg. I did not dare to ask her for permission to photograph her, given the totally casual situation and the very long explanation required. Would it not be a good idea to mail nowadays public photos of girls, who resemble LGG from the countries involved in this forum ? It might bring some clue regarding nationality. I understand there is a great ethnic blend in Europe but still there are some faces that are archetypical of a country or region. Some time ago a forumember remarked that LGG´s face was common in Northern Finland. I know it is a shot in the dark but it might cover a different approach to the identification of LGG. Cheers !

ignacioosacar1 Worth a try. The research this community is doing is a ground breaking experiment in a new type of research made possible by the internet. We may have started something great, even if we never find LGG or her name.

Hello,

I haven't been on this board for a few years, good to be back.
I have taken the photo that was recently found and superimposed a still frame of a close up from the film.
(sorry not sure how to upload a photo). I can say that the eyes, nose and mouth do match pretty well.
A lined up the eyes first and the spacing worked well. Once the eyes were lined up the nose and mouth were at
the same location as in the photo that was found.

Interesting that all three pretty much lined up. Not saying its the same person though. Would need an expert to determine that.


Regards,

Gary

Dear Forum,

Stello, an italian architect and forumember did an expert work a few years ago. He used the relevant comparison software , quite state-of-the-art at that moment I suppose. Maybe we have to check on his work again so as to to avoid redundant research. He had concluded that she was not the same person.

Cheers and

HAPPY NEW YEAR !

Some interesting information concerning lost girl
War is its own special kind of hell. This is the story of the “Lost German Girl” parts of which were later incorporated in a Steven Spielberg film. While the Spielberg movie was historical fiction, there is naked reality here as filmed by US Army Air Force cameraman Oren Haglund in 1945, just one day after the surrender of Nazi Germany to the Allies.

Later she would be identified as Lore Bauer, a young German girl who had been assigned to operate anti-aircraft guns as Germany was experiencing massive losses of male soldiers. Stationed in Czechoslovakia when the war ended, she and her other female companions were brutally beaten and raped by angry Czechs who had suffered at the hands of the SS.

When she ran into an American unit on the road, you can see her bury her face into a small notebook. It turns out that she had hidden about 100 Czech crowns (currency) which she did not realize was worthless at the end of the conflict. She flashed the currency to bribe the soldiers into allowing her to pass.

To let her know that the unit was American, cameraman Haglund handed her a US penny. Over time she made her way back to Germany and eventually married after the war. She gave birth to two daughters, and it was a granddaughter, Emi, who would eventually visit Haglund’s grave in San Bernardino, California and leave a penny–the very same penny given to her grandmother in 1945–on his headstone.

In that time of war, was she guilty? How far and how deep is God’s forgiveness? Far be it for me to judge her, but I cling to the line of the poem spoken in the background by the Russian poet Marina Tsvetaeva that imparts this immortal promise, “my unavoidable faults and trespasses will be forgiven me.”

See page 95 of this Thread. This has been discussed before and is fiction.

Why not just lock this thread? Seems like it has out-lived its usefulness a long time ago.
