I had a good day today. I knew this would be a day of learning my way around, and so it was. One very good thing was that I put in a request for the Help Lady to pull the Ribbentrop Collection of Waffen-SS Kriegsberichter contact sheets, knowing that the next records pull wasn't scheduled for another two hours. However, 15 minutes later, she wheeled them up to me on a cart. Whoever had them earlier had just finished using them, and so now they were mine to scan!
I had to take a look through what they encompassed. Sadly, they end at about late May, 1944. Several guys I wanted to see weren't there (Werner Stille and Henri Reinsberg, for example), and several others lacked their late-war images (Werner Mielke, Hermann Gronert, and Alois Jarolim). I did scan everything I wanted from Bruno Wisniewski and most of what I wanted from Jarolim. I'll continue with Jarolim Wednesday morning, and move on to some great Legion Nederland and Brigade Langemarck material.
The Help Lady showed me a translation they had done of a document they found. It is from late 1944, and gives the fate of a number of the Bildbericheters. I learned that Wisniewski and Helmut Moebius were both KIA at Narva during March 1944! Winiewski's last contact strip is dated March 1, and he died just six days later. Moebius died twenty days later, on the 26th.
I've incorporated that information into my ever-growing Bildberichter list, and have offered a copy to the NARA. It may help future researchers who access the material.
