Hermann Julius Gustav Wächter
He was once enlisted forcibly by the German Army to cure and alleviate depressing soldiers conditioned on the battle front, however, he refused many times. In the 1944, he was said to be shot and his family be killed if he did not give in from the orders, so he was assigned in Crucifix Hill. It is said that he did little to help the soldiers, but tended more time to the prisoners. He was deemed to be referred as a traitor and killed by the Gestapo, but on October 8, 1944, while the Germans were busy fighting American Forces, American bombers dropped tons of bombs to the hill, and apparently, he was said to be killed among those rosters in the Waffen-SS defending the hill. His body was never found.
