Malmedy

Post by Baz45 » 12 Aug 2002 12:42

This is my first post here, hopefully it will be well recieved.

Who was ultimately held responsible for the murder of captured American troops at Malmedy and was anyone eventually punished specifically for the murders?

Contrary to what I previously believed, I just got roasted on another forum for suggesting it was Peiper and his Kampfgruppe that carried out the atrocity.

Marcus has the most comprehensive list of the trials outcome (per defendant) at his third reich site.

It should read 'commuted' and not 'commutted'. Here ends the free English lesson.

We take the liberty of pointing out the report of Judge van Roden on the treatment of German soldiers, including suspects in the Malmedy case:

Thank you for the free English lesson.

Perhaps you should raise this spelling matter with Marcus so he can change the word concerned on his website. :idea:

I am sure he will be as interested as I was.

Thanks, but unfortunately I notice that you still are using the same condescending tone in your posts.

I checked with my father several times about the incident near Malmedy and visited the place with him. He was in the convoy of the LAH passing that location which is known about the massacre. He told me that it was against any regulation to kill POW’s. The convoy stretched out for some distance. What he had heard from the others when they joined up was that the POW’s put down their weapons and were ready to surrender. At that time US troops came up from Malmedy and started engaging the convoy. The POW’s tried to run back and got caught between the opposing forces. The regulation was that the POW’s had to walk against the convoy and the last vehicles would pick them up.

Welcome to this forum, Baz45. I don't know why you were "roasted" for asking your question about the Malmedy Massacre. There was nothing wrong with your question. I offer you a warning, though, as well as a suggestion. The warning is about believing anything you read on any websites associated with revisionist-historian David Irving. Irving is an avowed Holocaust denier as well as a Nazi sympathizer so anything he says should be taken with a grain of salt. The fact that Forum member Hebden recommended it to you, along with his free English lessons, says a lot about Hebden. The suggestion I offer you is to get "The Malmedy Massacre: The War Crimes Trial Controversy" by Professor Steven P. Remy. It was published by Harvard University Press in 2017 and is the best of a half-dozen or so books I've read on that particular war crime. As far as the late Judge Edward Leroy van Roden is concerned, anything he said should be taken with just a slightly larger grain of salt than Mr. Irving. I hope this helps.

Welcome to this forum, Baz45.
You may have noticed that this thread is 18 years old. The user you adressed is gone for ages.
