Re: [Wanted] Waffen-SS Soldbuch

Word to the wise: Watch out, there are very very very many reproductions out there, originally made for re-enactors, but sometimes being tried to sell as the real thing. Personally, a very good friend, made me a reproduction soldbuch, based on my Stammkarte and info i had given him. If it were not f...

Re: Was Dresden a mistake?

Another thing often forgotten is: the 50,000 'workers" in the war- related-industry, were mainly foreigners who had been volunteered (sic) to ...

I forgot most of my German, but at 85 that is understandable, I don't think you are that old yet. But...

Some records were 'recaptured" or 'rewritten" when all was over, and some schreibstuben still pretended to function, although already in an internment camp. My Regt. (Landst...
