Title: George John Dasch (1903-1992)

Description: George John Dasch (February 7, 1903-1992), German spy and saboteur, who, along with several others, landed on American soil from a German submarine off the coast of Long Island, New York, on the night of June 12, 1942. As part of Operation Pastorious, a Nazi plan for German agents to sabotage key American factories, communications centers, docks and ships, Dasch and others covertly landed in New York, while another German submarine landed another group of spies on the Florida coast. However, before the Nazi spies got into action, Dasch and another saboteur, Ernest Burger, defected, Dasch going to FBI officials and revealing the details of Operation Pastorious. All of the would-be saboteurs were quickly rounded up by FBI agents. All were convicted on charges of espionage and sabotage. Dasch and Burger were sent to prison, but six others were condemned to death and executed by electric chair in the Washington, D.C. Jail on August 8, 1942. President Harry Truman released Dasch and Burger in 1949 and they were deported to their native Germany.
