'H Eleven bodies were cremated here last Oct. 16. This is reported -o be the only crematorium now operating in Bavaria. Bodies sometimes accumulate in backlogs or as many as 40 or 50 in the bas(Tment, the attendants say. An American officer arrived at 5 a-m. ol the day the Nazis were hanged soon n rtcr midnight at Nuernberg. He told the attendants that trucks would arrive at 7 am with the bodies of 11 American soldiers killed and buried during the war. Their kin had asked for (heir ashes, he said. Actually- it was, n before guards surrounded the crematory to separate it from the cemetery grounds. Tw'o trucks arrived witli • >' wooden i. army caskets which t were carried down to the .oven in the basement. The fires already-were going Except for two German firemen and a German technician. on ly a harnuul of American officers were present. The oven could handle only one coffin at a time/The wood was heavier than that in the normal German cremation casket. J, So it took all day to do the job. r It was II before the cremations were finished. An American officer "took 11 heavy urns, and the military party left the crematory. Tiie Gel-mans had not exactly been fooled. As soon as they heard what had been Koinn; on. they talk- C'l of the likelihood that the need for investigating Goering's snicicle delayed the arrival of the bodies for two hours. It v as known in Nuernberg that morning that the examination of Goering's body caused the trucks to leave with the bodies behind schedule.
