You probably know already but it's part of the cut content that actually managed to slip into the West End Games RPG book. It's on TheRaider's timeline but miscredited there as part of Trenches of Hell:

He tells the camp leaders that he is a double agent for the Germans and is sent ahead to Berlin. Once there, Indy is able to contact the American Embassy.

September 1916 Broadened by his experiences on the front, Indy decides to stay in Europe, despite being given the opportunity to return home...

For what it's worth, his dad tells Indy (and Herman) that Ferdinand was shot in Sarajevo in Young Indiana Jones and the Secret City while they're in Turkey. Professor Jones decides to get out of dodge because of war talk.

And it happened during (and heavily implied because of) the outcome of Indy and Herman's attempts to get the Knife of Cain off the secret king of an underground city.

So he should be vaguely aware of it, chronologically speaking.
