Interesting story in the ST.Magazine in which a German Jew,serving in the British Army was central to Hoess's apprehension in Schleswig Holstein when he was hiding out,working as a farm labourer under the name of Franz Lang....Franz being his second name. I knew the background to Hoess's arrest,his change of identity,his undercover farm role and was aware he was roughly handled on arrest.The Captain in question was Hanns Alexander who was lucky to get out of Germany in 1938 and found himself at the bottom of the pile in the British Army's AMPC. In 1942,Alexander was commissioned as Lieutenant and then as a Captain in 1945,was recruited into a special unit hunting down war criminals. Hanns Alexander's nephew,Thomas Harding came across his uncle's wartime activities after his death in December 2006 and decided to write an account entitled "Hanns and Rudolf".The book is due for publication release on this Thursday (22 August 2013 by Heinemann. Hoess wrote his bibliography while in captivity entitled "Commandant at Auschwitz".Some have said, of recent, that he was coerced to write as it appears.However the publication was a revealing insight to the minds of those involved in genocide.His orders, as he put it, relieved it, in his mind of any personal responsibility.Like many of these monsters,he had a sentimental love of animals. Remember William Joyce being similarly apprehended in also in Schleswig Holstein by a German Jew,serving in perhaps the same British Army unit.
