1. The AAF forum will close permanently on December 1, 2017. I no longer have the time to manage a project like this, obviously, or give it the attention that it deserves. I still think fondly of the early days in 1998 when this all got started. A small, but eager group of tech savvy 1st and 2nd generation descendants made great friends with the last of the WWII veterans thru the newfangled internet. They're all gone now. It's time for me to turn the page. Thanks for being along for part of the ride. I'm sorry it got so bumpy in the end.

    Sgt Kane was beaten to death by members of the Volssturm and civilians at Neu-Wulsdorf, 5 miles East from Buxtehude.
    During the Dachau trials one of these criminals was sentenced to death by hanging and two others got 20 and 7 years imprisonment.
    In January 1946, Sgt.Kane was reinterred in the Margraten Cemetery Plot 3B-7-157 as X-2130
    Finally reinterred in Plot H-15-7.

    Hello
    In the REPORT OF BURIAL from Sgt. William Kane I found following remarks:
    Cause of death: 1. Skull fracture. 2. Bullet wound, lower left chest. 3. Possible drowing (water in lungs).
    Other wounds: 1. Fracture of jaw. 2. Fracture of left maxilla. 3. Blood in uper left abdominal cavity.

    Dammann, Böhrs and Brummer had abused W. Kane, but not Dammann shot W. Kane.
    A soldier from the near by "Fischbeker Kaserne" (Barracks) killed Sgt. William Kane.
    The mother of William Kane (Cecilia Gellen) was a German women from Weimar, his father
    Albert Kalne ( later in the USA the name without l) from Litavia. William Kane spoke very good German.
    His last words were: "Ihr Deutschen wollt es nicht besser haben." (Source: Hans Stöver, Hamburg-Fischbek)

    I think it could be possible that in the case of Dan A. Wais also a REPORT OF BURIAL has information
    about his death.
