How ever, some sources mention more than a couple of vehicles.
The source in my first post says 40 vehicles. Who knows for sure, how many there were.
On one hand, the TR top echelon did settle more than a few accounts in the very last hour.
How ever, one could also suggest, that it would be doubtful for the regime to bother with a liquidation order for this type of prisoner at this point of time in the War.
Maybe a soldier fired at the Allied troops? Maybe the two were executed when found out to be members of the SS? The SS was not universially loved at that point by the Allies ...to put it diplomatically.
The facts might be lost in 'the fog of war.'
Look forward to hearing about how you perceive the incident, when and if you reach a conclusion.
