Major Rudolf Japs, 73. Inf.Div

Post by NIka » Tue Mar 10, 2009 9:16 pm

I am looking for my grandfather who fought in the Crimea and was wondering if anyone may have any information on Major Rudolf Japs, the commanding officer of the 73. Infanterie-Division?
I would really appreciate any info!

Thank you!

Hi Nika,

It's not much :
Japs was Ia (operations officer) of this division from Mar 1943 - Dec 1943.

There was also a Oberleutnant Japs that was adjutant of Arko 18 in januari 1939.

He did not receive the Knights Cross, DKiG or Ehrenblattspange.

That's really all i can tell you.

Regards Eric

Thank you very much, Eric!
Do you know if there is any photograph of Rudolf Japs available, or a "yearbook" for the officers involved in the Crimean campaign?

Thanks,
Nika
