Detroiter's Father, Jerome Shapiro, Was Goering's Captor

Jerome N. Shapiro, who as a
young army lieutenant captured
Reich Marshal Hermann Goering
in 1945, died April 5 in Dover, Del.
at age 50. He was the father of
Mrs. Richard Mellen of Detroit.
Mr. Shapiro was attached to the
36th Infantry Division near Salz-
burg, Austria, in early May 1945,
when Goering was attempting to
escape the German SS.
Mr. Shapiro, then 27, was sent to
head a search party for Goering,
who intended to surrender to the
American Army. Goering was in-
tercepted by the search party be-
tween Mauterndorf and Fischhorn.
