Man TK, it's going to be hard to find much info on this man. My great uncle was a pilot, for the US, in World War II and trying to find many details on his time in the service has been difficult. I couldn't even imagine where you would begin to look. Hopefuly someone here can offer you some help.

I am hoping someone on here knows tons of info on the Nazis in WWII, he was just not some other guy or anything, he was a high ranking official so i think there sould be some stuff out there, the name is slightly diffrent and it was changed a little to be more american

The only Hess that I know of during the war was Rudolph. He got out of town early on though and it has been a mystery, as to why, ever since.

It's either Rudolph Hess, or Rudolph Heusse(?)...pronounced similar to Hess but differently spelled - I'm not sure if "Heusse" right.

Heusse was the commander of Auschwitz concentration camp, Hess was a close advisor to Hitler who tried to fly to Britain on his own to negotiate a peace treaty but was captured and imprisoned.

Have you tried just asking her about it? Obviously she gave you that bit of info, I'm sure you could get her divulge more (if she knows any more.)

If it's the "Hess" I'm thinking of, he died in a British prison over 10 years ago.

Although it is easier to find Allied WWII folks, it is not impossible to locate members of the
other side. But you have to know something about that person. For example, military service.
Say the individual was Luftwaffe, and in particular, may have flown the Me 262 (will make it easy,
its my example....he he). My first stop would be something like this:

then click on Me 262 page, click the checkmark to open the dropdown, select memorium, click the
go button, and see the review of those KIAs in the Me 262.

The real trick is not to search for the person first, but the organization he was in.
