Wielen

On April 10, 1946, British Prosecutor G. D. Roberts called Max Wielen, Senior Government Counsellor of the Criminal Police (Kripo) at Breslau. He was interrogated regarding the order to shot escapees of the Stalag Luft III (Sagan Order). He was called to refute certain testimony during the defense case of Ernst Kaltenbruner. Dr. Nelte, Cousnelor for Keitel, inquired as to whether his client would have had knowledge of such Order?
