Date and Time of Breakout[edit]

This is not 'uncertain'. Baur entered a subway tunnel with 15 others at 9:30 pm on May 1. The group had to surface at the Friedrichstrasse station and tried to escape over the Weidendammer Brücke (bridge) that spans the Spree (river). Here he was seen by Erich Kempka. Baur was badly wounded. In russian captivity, one of his legs had to be amputated. He was not released until 1955. (Bodo)

.[edit]

The translation "I flew with the master of the Earth" from the german "Ich Flog Mit den Mächtigen Der Erde" is not accurate. "Mächtige" (plural) does not mean master but "The mighty", a better translation would be "I flew with the mighty of the earth". ~Mephistophilus

Thank you. I shall modify the page accordingly. My knowledge of German is very small. CielProfond

To the Translation: The Book in German is actually Called "Ich flog Mächtige der Erde" which I would translate into: "I flew Mighty [ones] of the earth/world" Though I have also seen this title: "Mit Mächtigen zwischen Himmel und Erde" which i would translate into: "With Mighty [ones] inbetween (the) Sky and Earth" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.3.162.51 (talk) 16:20, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
