    My father, 2/Lt. Robert T. Hanrahan, was the navigator on this plane. None of the crew knew exactly what happened to Lt. Norby; all they knew was that he was KIA and the alleged wreckage site (Bad Bibra).

    This is not a complete suprise, but it is shocking nonetheless. I will relay this information of the one surviving crew member.

    Thank you so much for posting this.

    Yes, thanks so much--I meant to post the link to the JVL myself but in my current state of mind forgot to do so.

    May I suggest to use this pdf.?
    http://www.online.uni-marburg.de/icwc/dachau/000-012-1911.pdf
    The Jewish Virtual library often has technical problems in showing the correct pdf. I do not know where the reason for that is.
    There was another incident in March 1945, 3 or 4 RAF air men were killed. This leads to the question if there was a liquidation squad organized by the Party, SS, Gestapo or other Nazi organizations. Since the second incident was - if - brought before trial it happened in the british occupation zone. Unfortunately these british cases are not online (which helps so much!).

    Thank you, Susanne,
    I have edited my post #3 to use your Dachau trial link.
