Re: Researching the Luftwaffe through Prisoner Interrogations
 
Are there any PW interrogations about the weapons that the Luftwaffe used,especially air to air rockets and surface to air rockets?

I was contacted by a Luftwaffe pilot. He has a copy of his A.D.I.(K)report. The report is rather general, but he was interviewed several times and is wondering if there are any transcripts of these interrogations and where they are kept.

Thanks

Peter

Greetings Peter,

Over a span of some 40 years, I have been through all of the P/W interrogation files I could find at both NARA (WashDC) and BNA (London). No transcripts were seen. Once the interrogation report was written and published, the transcripts became redundant and apparently were later destroyed. Perhaps some others here found some and have a different opinion.

A source of interrogations that some may have overlooked are those made by the USSBS teams. There were a number of them at the USAF museum archives. There are probably some in the USSBS record group at National Archives.


Best regards,

Was it a 'report', or a 'Summary'? The two are entirely different things.


The Report was held in a folder and contained the verbatim Q & A, as well as any photographs.


The Summary was just that. A summary of what was learned from the interrogation, together with details of their aircraft.
