Note that these are only the last weeks of the war.

BTW I think that in cases of an heavily Wound (Schwerverletzte) it was simply a shot of mercy, maybe because they couldnt care for him right no and wanted to end his suffers.

It is very tasteless to insert a smilie in a post listing alledged warcrimes in my opinion.

I agree, it's at least strange.

So what's the source for (and proof of) these killings? I didn't see one at the link (The Jewish Virtual Library apparently took the chart from the Dachau Scrapbook website, which doesn't provide verifiable references to sources for many or most of its claims).

From the section rules:
Undocumented claims undercut the research purposes of this section of the forum. Consequently, it is required that proof be posted along with a claim. The main reason is that proof, evidence, facts, etc. improve the quality of discussions and information. A second reason is that inflammatory, groundless threads attack, and do not promote, the scholarly purpose of this section of the forum.

This requirement applies to each specific claim. In the past, some posters have attempted to evade the proof requirement by resort to the following tactics, none of which are acceptable here:

A general reference to a website, or a book without page references; citations or links to racist websites; generalized citations to book reviews; and citations to unsourced articles.

Noncomplying posts are subject to deletion after warning. (emphasis added)
Also, as Marcus (and Musashi) have already noted, a post on murdered folks, followed by a "smiley," has no place in a research area of the forum. Don't do it again.

I am sure Joachim Chan wanted to express this way he is very proud of himself, that he found something "new". However I also found something to improve his humor.

One possibilty that can't be discounted is the fact that some of those killed, may have killed whilst trying to escape from detention or killed within the detention area's by other soldiers, fighting over food for example. The Allied unit listed in this scenario would that of the unit that administered the camp.

Okay...it didn't not mean anything other than i got sources for our book.


From the same source, the scan actually from a German newspaper and it is alleged that the German government forwarded a list to the Allied Control Council for punishment of the Allied perpetrators but it was rejected.

What newspaper the scan originated from i ..(oops) had no idea. it was not mentioned at all

Thanks Musashi, for the links.. I think i should be a great assistance to Professor Siedler and Dr. Alfred Maurice de Zayas in their compilation of Allied war crimes :D :D :D

Joachim -- In the future don't post unsourced claims. After the many warnings you've gotten here, you should know better.

I can't see any reference to UK troops being involved either.

Hi Peter - the notations for April 8th and 9th refer to the British 11th Armored Division. (11 PzDiv)

I've never heard of a "ethinic Polish American" unit either.
