Posted at 8:54 AM on June 6, 2007 by Bill Wareham (1 Comments)
At 11, on the anniversary of D-Day, Stephen Smith of MPR's documentary unit American RadioWorks will present highlights of original radio broadcasts of key events in World War II-- D-Day, Pearl Harbor and Iwo Jima.
At noon, a live from the National Press Club, featuring U.S. senator and former Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry.
Thank you for the sounds of WWII. You used three specific battles.
In your archives I hope that you can find, or direct me to the answer to a question I have tried to answer sincw WWII. I was a child, doing dishes after supper in my childhood home. On the radio the newscaster said " the Nazis have hanged General Hinrich von Stahmer". I have tried to find a record of this person, or the hanging. Decendents of Stahmers claim this person never existed. There were other Stahmers with fingers in the Nazi pie: Hinrich Georg Stahmer, ambassador on Ribbentrop's staff; Dr. Otto Stahmer, counsel for Herman Goering at the Nuremburg Trials; A U-Boat commander and a Max that was some sort of a messenger. There, of course, may be others. I can find no memoirs from HG or Dr.
Any clue you are ablr to help me with is greatly appreciated.
