Incident and aftermath
The incident occurred on 29 March 1945.
The victims' remains were found in 1995 by the Israelitische Kultusgemeinde Wien. 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. In 2009, then 90-year-old Storms was indicted for his alleged involvement in the killings.
Storms died on June 28, 2010 at the age of 90.
