  • The Utah prisoner of war massacre (headlined by Time as Midnight Massacre) took place after the end of World War II in Europe at midnight on July 8, 1945 at a German and Italian prisoner-of-war camp in Salina, Utah. Nine German prisoners of war were murdered and nineteen prisoners were wounded by American private Clarence V. Bertucci, who was on active duty in the camp. After a night out, Bertucci returned to camp around midnight to assume his night duty at the guard tower. Bertucci subsequently loaded the .30-caliber M1917 Browning machine gun on the tower and fired at the tents of the sleeping prisoners. After the massacre, he revealed his motivation was that, "he had hated Germans, so he had killed Germans." Six Germans were immediately killed, three died in Salina's hospital, and nineteen were wounded. The victims were buried with full military honors at the Fort Douglas Cemetery. Wounded prisoners were sent back to Germany after they were healthy enough to travel. After the massacre, Bertucci was taken into custody with little resistance. He was evaluated for a few weeks, before doctors determined that he was "mentally unbalanced." Military officers forwent a court-martial on account of insanity and he was sent to Mason General Hospital in New York for an undisclosed amount of time. The Midnight Massacre is remembered for being "the worst massacre at a POW camp in U.S. history" and represented the largest killing of enemy prisoners in the United States during World War II. A museum was opened at Camp Salina in 2016. (en)
  • 真夜中の虐殺(Midnight Massacre)とは、第二次世界大戦末期のアメリカ合衆国で起こった戦争捕虜の殺害事件である。1945年7月8日未明、ユタ州の捕虜収容所で看守を務めていた米陸軍のクラレンス・V・ベルトゥッチ二等兵(Clarence V. Bertucci)が、収容されていた旧ナチス・ドイツの捕虜を機関銃で銃撃し、9人を殺害、20人を負傷させた。この事件は「アメリカ史上最悪の捕虜収容所における虐殺」(the worst massacre at a POW camp in U.S. history)とも言われる。第二次世界大戦中に枢軸軍捕虜の殺害に関する起訴を受けた米軍人は3人のみであったが、ベルトゥッチもその1人であった。この事件が発生した時点でナチス・ドイツは降伏しており、欧州における第二次世界大戦は事実上終結していた。 (ja)
