"Austrian Airfocre commander and Luftwaffe Commander"

That's the same thing. Luftwaffe is german for Air Force. Bobby1011 15:15, 18 February 2006 (UTC)

He was a Commander of the Austrian Airforce before the Anschluss....therefore not a Luftwaffe Commander, although he did become one. He was Head of the Austrian Airforce before Gerany annexed Austria in 1938.

End of the war[edit]

The Kurt Waldheim article asserts that the General attempted some sort of special arrangement with the British at the end of the war, although it doesn't explicitly state what the General was trying to accomplish. What did he do at the end of the war, why'd he do it, did it get anywhere at all? MrZaiustalk 17:30, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

Helden der Wehrmacht[edit]

Stop pushing this Nazi publication "Helden der Wehrmacht - Unsterbliche deutsche Soldaten / Heroes of the Wehrmacht - Immortal German soldiers" in this article. --Otberg (talk) 21:15, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

The Portrayal in right wing publications is not relevant for this article. --Otberg (talk) 09:54, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

"Hotly contested"[edit]

Suggestion re this passage:

  • Bischof, Plasser and Stelzl-Marx state that Löhr's role in the bombing of Belgrade is "hotly contested".[by whom?] Some sources argue that he was not in a position to oppose Hitler. Others state that because he had been partly responsible for the firebombing of Warsaw in 1939, he was well aware of the likely results of such an attack on Belgrade, and could have resigned. It has been observed[by whom?] that his resignation would not have stopped the firebombing, but also that he displayed no civil courage later in the war, particularly when it came to the deportation of Jews.[1]


The preceding passage used to state that Löhr was convicted in connection to bombing of Belgrade in 1941, but that was not the case as other charges pertaining to the subsequent years of the war, up to his command decisions post Germany's surrender. I suggest removing it as it now reads like a non sequitur. Please let me know of any feedback. K.e.coffman (talk) 03:25, 25 June 2016 (UTC)


Somebody inserted a claim that he had Jewish ancestors. Can somebody (maybe @K.e.coffman:) confirm this? I can’t access the source. — (((Romanophile))) (contributions) 14:47, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
