BERLIN, June 16. ? The work |
of exhuming the bodies of the I
American soldiers who died as
prisoners of war in Germany has
developed such difficulties that
some uncertainty attaches to the
identity of the few which have
been unearthed from among the
unnamed German and other dead
In the cemeteries near the old
prison camps. j
Many of the graves were un- i
mdrked and the names of the men 1
buried, in some places were un- I
known, so that much guesswork
entered into the task of the American
graves registration service,
in charge of two American Army
officers, which has superintended
the operations.
"The bodies exhumed comprise
what are thought to he the remains
of American soldiers who
died in Germany," said a member
of the registration service. "We
have shipped fifteen from Leipzig
to Antwerp for transportation to
America. Our operations have
been carried out in Strasshurg,
