6.SS-TK, Prague

Post by Tom Houlihan » Thu Dec 19, 2013 8:33 am

Does anyone happen to have any specific knowledge of what SS-Totenkopfstandarte 6 would have actually been doing while they were garrisoned in Prague? I'm sure they had some standard guard duties, and I understand normal barracks duties, but what were they guarding? Were there other SS facilities in Prague at the time I don't know about? Were they simply a 'presence?'

Thanks!

I think there was a Waffen-SS field hospital ("Lazarett') in Prague and also in the Czech city of Olmutz. My Dad (2 Coy, I Btn, SS-Panzergrenadier Rgt 1, "LAH") was sent there after being wounded in Greece, 1941. He is second from the right.

Danke! That is good to know about the Lazarett, but you made me realize I wasn't specific enough.

I'm researching 6.SS-TK prior to 1940. They were stationed in Prague, but I haven't been able to figure out what they were guarding!

Good information, though!

Hello,

TK Standarte was used to guard official non military buildings, also for security matters alongside orpo battalions.
