The Langensheidt German-English dictionary lists:
ungesühnt adj. unpunished, unavenged.
It appears to be derived from the past participle of the verb
sühnen, v/t. expiate, atone for
This is a better-than-average German-English dictionary. The German to
English section alone is over 750 pages. There are few words that one
cannot find in it (and most of those are Plattdeutsch [low German]).
It costs $32.95 from Borders (less 10%).
Note that many persons will write. e.g., "ue" instead of making an
umlaut-u "ü" even though RootsWeb now supports these special characters.
