Biography Fritz Thilo

Fritz was employed by the German army during the war as a scientist in relation to an adhesive that he had developed for use on airplanes. In the last week of the war he was on a train that was struck by Allied bombs. Survivors were taken prisoner by the approaching Russian army. Fritz was never identified by anyone after the bombing, but his identification papers were found in a field, intact, away from the train. His name appears on the family grave at Mödling, but he was never found.
