Victor Oehrn

Post by ioannis » 19 Jan 2006 22:17

Is there any place to look and find detailed info on the Fregattenkapitan Victor Oehrn and especially during his post as Admiralstaboffizier for the uboote waffe in the Med and his presence in Athens-Salamis during the spring of 1942?
I am also looking for his post war activities as he died in 1995.
Thank you
