Gestapo murder downed airmen...because one Jewish?

Postby Inquisitor » 1 year 1 week ago (Mon Feb 17, 2020 7:29 pm)

This story has been getting a ton of press in eastern PA. While the vast majority of the articles make no mention of the supposed details of the "murder," I found this one that at least makes an attempt...but not a terribly convincing one. My attempts to find more historical evidence to actually back any of these claims up has been futile thus far. Then there is, buried lower in the article:

Although there are some discrepancies in the historical accounts, it is believed Prokop and Goldstein — along with a third airman who became separated from them and spent the last months of the war in Europe in German captivity — managed to parachute from the doomed B-17 before it crashed. The rest of the plane’s crew perished.


Ah, the old "some discrepancies" disclaimer. And I'm sure there are plenty!

I am curious about how they found out that the reason the individual was executed was because "a Gestapo officer learned one of his crewmates was Jewish."

And the Germans said they feared that they would be executed if they didn't do it?

While questioning the men, Gestapo director Hermann Fehrle discovered Goldstein was Jewish and became enraged, according to one account. He cursed and slapped the airman, calling him a murderer before ordering a subordinate to have all three Americans shot.

"According to one account" -- what account?

Exactly! By what magic means was all that information obtained as such? It just sounds so...made-up, per the official-narrative, etc.
