Typewritten letter on onionskin paper. Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: A response from the Judge Advocate Division of War Crimes Branch to International Committee of the Red Cross in Geneva, Switzerland. The Deputy Judge Advocate asserts that an SS Major, Kurt Gross, has not been denied his rights as a POW under the Geneva Accords -- as his father alleges -- but rather is a war criminal, convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for "participation in the killing of two surrendered and unarmed American flyer prisoners of war..." in July of 1944.
