KILIAN, Lothar. Königsberg or Nidden near Klaipeda 12.10.1922 or 1911 — 12.3.2000 or 1999. German Archaeologist and IE Scholar in Germany. Ph.D. 1939 Königsberg (?). Participated in WW II, was war prisoner and only returned in 1949. In 1951-54 Assistant at Bonn. From 1957 kustos in Landesmuseum Trier. After retiring living in Bonn. But if only born in 1922 (thus in both Lithuanian sources), 1939 seems impossible for Ph.D. But the list of prehistoric scholars in German Wikipedia gives 1911 as birth year.
