Help needed in translation

  • Hello everybody...


    I am looking into a murder committed against a Danish naziparty member in 1945 ... In the German police records it says that a "Halb bruder" was arrested on suspicion of being involved in the murder...


    My question, what is a "Halb bruder" exactly ??


    Is it a blood related Brother, where the mother or the farther is the same ?? Or could it also be a not blood related "new" Brother that the farther or the mother have had in a previcious marriage ??


    Sure hope you guess understand my question, if not let me know .. :) Remember I read German ...

    Hi Peter,
    that's a Halbbruder.
