Kurt Wieland files


KV 2/400 - KV 2/402


"Operation Atlas"  was an RSHA Amt Mil operation


 parachuting men

over Palestine territories.

They ultimately landed, after technical problems, on 5/6 October 1944 near to Jericho, in Palestine.


The men dropped had strong links with the area and spoke the languages fluently, because they had been born- and grown-up there.

Please look for his hands.

German military personnel did always keep their hand like this; when in: Ruhestellung .

There exist good photos of this phenomenon, for instance, of Rommel.
