  • Description

    THE COMMANDER OF ALLIED FORCES CENTRAL EUROPE, GENERAL JOHANN ADOLF VON KIELMANNSEGG, FACED A DEMONSTRATION BY STUDENTS AND "PROVOS" WHEN HE VISITED LIMBURG PROVINCE TODAY (TUESDAY).

    THE GERMAN GENERAL CALLED ON THE QUEEN'S COMMISSIONER FOR THE PROVINCE AT MAASTRICHT AFTER VISITING THE SITE BEING PREPARED FOR ALLIED FORCES CENTRAL EUROPE'S HEADQUARTERS AT NEARBY BRUNSSUM.

    A YOUNG MAN WAS ARRESTED WHEN HE PULLED A HOME-MADE PETROL BOMB FROM HIS POCKET, AND SEVERAL YOUTHS AND GIRLS WERE CAUTIONED AND MOVED ON BY POLICE.

    THE DEMONSTRATORS PASSED AROUND PAMPHLETS, SOME DESCRIBING GENERAL VON KIELMANNSEGG AS "THE MURDERER IN POLAND" AND OTHERS CARRYING PICTURES OF SWASTIKAS.

    THE GENERAL WAS ACCOMPANIED ON THE VISIT BY THE N.A.T.O. SUPREME COMMANDER, GENERAL LYMAN L. LEMNITZER, AND OTHER SENIOR MILITARY OFFICIALS. AT A PRESS CONFERENCE GENERAL KIELMANNSEGG REFUSED TO COMMENT ON THE DEMONSTRATION.

    DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR GENERAL KIELMANNSEGG SERVED IN FRANCE, POLAND AND RUSSIA UNTIL MID-1962 WHEN HE JOINED THE GERMAN GENERAL STAFF AND BECAME GENERAL STAFF OFFICER, OPERATIONS DEPARTMENT. HE WAS ARRESTED FOLLOWING THE ARMY OFFICERS' PLOT ON HITLER'S LIFE ON JULY 20, 1944, BUT WAS LATER RELEASED AND COMMANDED A REGIMENT OF TANK GRENADIERS ON THE WESTERN FRONT UNTIL THE END OF THE WAR.
