Dates required concerning ,,Hunyadi,, Division

Post by zoltay » Sun Jul 03, 2011 1:09 pm

Does anyone know the dates of -
1) the meeting held in Salzburg in April 1945 by Szalasi to decide the future of the ,,Hunyadi,, and ,,Hungaria,, divisions?
2) the date(s) of the visit by Laszlo Rapcsanyi in November 1944 to both the ,,Hunyadi,, division and the Szt Laszlo division?

Szalasi arrived in the Salzburg area at 23. April 1945, together with ~200 men
and their personal train. Szalasi resided at the "Hotel Seewirt" in village Mattsee, and the
hungarian government resided in the Hotel "Österreichischer Hof" in Salzburg city.
On 29. April he married, and left Mattsee one day later to relocate to Salzburg city.

I could not find an exact date for that meeting, but would strongly think it was held on 30. April 1945.
That day parts of Hunyadi and Hungaria divisions recieved orders to move to Burghausen - Bavaria, to
meet and to get near to american troops. Aswell, that was the day Hitler commited suicide in Berlin.

Sadly no idea about 2).
