Totenkopf Standarte Breslau 1939

Post by Gunther » Mon Dec 05, 2016 2:41 pm

My Grandfather volunteered on 1st September 1939 and with many SS reservists joined the Totenkopf Division. Before the Division was assembled at Dachau were such reservists posted to Totenkopf Standarte within Germany for training?

I have photographs with annotations 'Breslau 1939' so must have been taken in September before transfer to Dachau. I can't seem to attach them here..?!

Can anyone shed any light on to this or as to which Standarte was based in Breslau?

Thank you!

SS-Totenkopf-Infanterie-Ersatzbataillon I was there from 20.10.1939 onwards. This was the first of several such training and replacement units for the division.
