Details:
No evidence of the award to Jordan Sauter can be found in the German Federal Archives. According to Von Seemen verified by his paybook and written communication with the German Federal Archives.[28] The presentation should have been made via the Army Group Vistula and subsequently via the Außenstelle of the Heerespersonalamt (HPA/A—Branch of the Army Staff Office). Sauter however is not listed in the records of the HPA/A. The author Veit Scherzer was denied access to files, which could help clarify the case, of the Association of Knight's Cross Recipients (AKCR) on the grounds of the Bundesarchivgesetz (German Archive Law). Sauter was a member of the AKCR.
