    "Hans Bibow" should read Hans Biebow, (5 changes needed to surname, inc tags).

    The location is a courtroom in Lodz, Poland.

    Biebow's trial ran from 23-30 April 1947.

    CORRECTION - Those earlier dates may well be wrong, as many sources give the date of Biebow's death (by hanging) as 24 April 1947. Certainly the current date in the shots list of June 1947 would appear to be incorrect.
