comment Why was a convicted Nazi war criminal buried with military honours?
The German Wikipedia reports about his (inofficial) work as a consultant for the Bundeswehr. Perhaps this is one of the reasons - not his work during WWII, but his work after the war.

comment Pre-WW2 location of Skalat
@TylerDurden If you look at the map at wikipedia Skalat is in Ukraine. It changed the last centuries between Poland, Austria, Russia, again Austria and Poland, then USSR (Ukraine) and since 1991 Ukraine. The question could be better, but in my opinion it is not the question where Skalat is located, but how the borders changed around Skalat - so for me it is historical.
