    Hello , was the German who put the noose around the neck of the 17 year old Yugoslav Lepa Radic ever identified ?

    They know the place and SS unit

    I couldn't find any mention of the name of the solder on the photo. She is hanged in Bosanska Krupa by members of 7. SS Division "Prinz Eugen". SS Brigadef├╝hrerl Schmidthuber, commander of 14. SS Regiment, later received from his subordinated executions report: "A bandit hanged in Bosanska Krupa showed an unprecedented incarnation.". He was hanged himself after the war for war crimes in Yugoslavia.

    I guess the soldier was just doing his job and glad the commander paid the price . I wonder given the photographic evidence whether the War Crimes Commission ever looked for this soldier ?
