Is this going to be like the old SS Forum what used to be before Fieldgrau ?Mark C.

This is NOT a political debate area so be aware that obviously rude, degrading, racist, or similar zealous political attacks/exchanges will be deleted. Those who engage in that type of posting will be warned and the posting deleted. Since the wording of a warning will be clear to those with an IQ that has two digits, further similar posts will result in the individual being banned.
I'd appreciate if those posting questions or advice on seeking texts, etc please include age and if the person making an inquiry can read any languages other than English. Biographical questions related to SS personnel can be replied here, as well as in other areas of the site. However, most with any facet of SS interest should be using this area for initial solutions to questions. Should any questions be better replied in other areas, the inquiry will be moved. The topics within the forum overlap to some degree, so please note there is a specific Feldpost section for numbers research. I've done some research and writing on SS topics so will be glad to assist anyone in my specific areas if I can.
I think he means the old "Waffen-SS.com" That got way out of hand in its 'discussions", had its forum closed, and turned into a pay site. It's no longer on the web anymore. Too bad, the was some good info. Oh well. "Sic transit gloria mundi" HN.Jason Pipes wrote:I'm not sure I'm clear on what you're asking Gerhard. What SS forum before Feldgrau are you speaking of?
I would think that provided the question was asked out of a genuine interest in a period of history, then it would be OK. What Jason is trying to avoid is the blatantly right wing neo-nazi type threads that are only written to antagonise people, or those who seek to rewrite history by denying accusations that are palpably true. The SS and Waffen-SS on the one hand contained a number of men who fought bravely and well during the war BUT IT ALSO numbered thugs and sadists amongst its ranks. To deny that this was otherwise is to present a false picture and does not advance genuine research one iota.Bittrich wrote:Just for clarification, I can ask questions on any aspect of the SS as long as I state no offensive langauge with it? Just as an example ask about Eicke and his camp guards at Dachau? Or are inquiries concerning the Holocaust not allowed? I don't mean any trouble, I am just curious for sake of research.
