Nearly sixty years later in Canada, Hessel heard about a brutal, fatal beating of a nameless Canadian POW in the streets of a small town just a few blocks from where Hessel's own family had taken shelter. Who was this "unknown Canadian airman," and who were his murderers? Canadian authorities had forgotten the deed and never completed their investigation. Hessel felt compelled to reopen the file. His search for answers to these troubling questions would take him back and forth between Canada and Germany, as he combed through stacks of wartime records and tracked down eyewitnesses. The Mystery of Frankenberg's Airman is the account of painstaking research in a quest for the truth about an unsolved war crime."
