The Deutsch Schützen massacre was a 1945 mass killing of approximately 60 Jewish forced laborers in Deutsch Schützen-Eisenberg.

Incident and aftermath

The incident occurred on 29 March 1945.[1]

The victims' remains were found in 1995 by the Israelitische Kultusgemeinde Wien.[2] In 2008, Viennese political science student Andreas Foster discovered the name of Adolf Storms in records of the incident. Foster's professor Walter Manoschek gathered evidence and conducted a videotaped interview with Storms.[3] In 2009, then 90-year-old Storms was indicted for his alleged involvement in the killings.[4]

Storms died on June 28, 2010 at the age of 90.[5]
