    Most interesting. This KM soldier was assigned to a Panzer unit after the retreat of his unit from western France to Germany. He never made it and died in eastern France near Nancy (Lorraine) on October 2nd 1944. He was barely 18.

    another Priest who was murdered with 14 of his comrades by the retreating Gestapo of Le Mans only a few hours before the Americans arrived. Their bodies were found after 5 months only.
