Dutch W.SS volunteers

Yes, most of us lost our citizenship, some for a shorter time than others. Depending on circumstances. It entailed: forbidden to vote, forbidden to serve in the armed forces, forbidden to hold a government position, forbidden to be a notary, Judge, or Attorney, loss of all personal property, the dut...

re-enacting

As a W.SS. Vet, I have been "advising" a couple of reenactor groups. My experience taught me that these kids (men) in general are very sincere in wanting to portrey "living history". One particular group in the Northwest has just about fallen apart when their leader, a U.S. military vet has decided ...

Kit

Thank you for posting this Tom.
I had wondered if I should have mentioned it, but did not know if I should.
My prayers are added to the family's behalf !

p.s. Glad to hear that Patti has decided to keep on going; perhaps Chameleon will get off the press yet.

children

It's sad, but this phenomena is not just about "Germans and natives producing a child". It is the world over. In Vietnam children who , were fathered by U.S. soldiers were shunned and denied any assistance. living as paupers, begging an stealing to stay alive. Similarly in Indonesia so called "halfb...

Interesting "back and fourth" discussion. 8) As a "young" Waffen SS vet (I just started my 80th) :wink: , I appreciate those who know my identity, but keep the "yappers" at bay. I have no objection to sharing some of my experiences, but DO object the repeated requests, for my "Bio and a signed photo...

Heldengedenktag

Nice pictures Jan Hendrik. I was not aware that the Bundeswehr is allowed to participate in ceremonies like these. I would have answered on that forum, but my German, after 56 years in the USA is too rusty to be trusted in any real conversation. By the way: Jan Hendrik ? Dutch ? Just curious. Grüsse...

Arnhem

Some acconts I have mentioned that at Arnhem some British were killed by the Waffen SS member ( 9SS, 10SS, Dutch SS) after they had surrendered ... under the eyes of officers.

harrie

I think you can narrow your search down to the dutch SS units that were there. meaning the SS Wachtbattallion 3, and the Landstorm Nederland.
Harrie is a typical dutch way of writing Harry.
Just a thought.

Herr Völkner

This story strikes several chords. I did not serve at the Eastern Front. Although limited in my exposure to battle field experiences, as compared to those who did face the soviet hordes, I did indeed get my share of it. Reading his story, I cannot help but feel that for many, our lives ran parallel ...
