    I assume "hidrick" is supposed to be Reinhard Heydrich.

    His driver, Oberscharführer Johannes Klein, was briefly dazed, but not injured by the explosion and, pistol in hand, gave chase to one of the assassins, Jozef Gabčík.

    He had to give up after Gabčík shot him in the leg. His gunshot wound was surgically treated at the Bulovka hospital. Klein suffered a permanent limp as a result of this injury.

    He was eventually promoted to Untersturmführer and administered an SS driving school until the end of the war.

    Do you know what happened to him after the war? I was reading on another forum, that someone said he was murdered in the 1990s

    Sorry; I don't know about his postwar fate.
