Chef Sipo und SD Slovakia

Postby Max Williams » 23 Apr 2007 11:35

Who was the chief of Sipo und SD in Slovakia in December 1944 please? I believe he held the rank of SS-Obersturmbannführer.
Thanks,
Max.

He was a member of Abwehrgruppe 218 within the Sipo/SD.
He was employed within the SS-RSHA.
Received the 1939 EK II on 28-10-1944.

SS-Obersturmbannführer und Oberregierungsrat Dr. Josef WITISKA was Kommandeur der SIPO und des SD in Distrikt Galizien (Lemberg) between 20 II 1943 and 20 VII 1944, not until 9 IX 1944.
Lviv was reached by the troops of the Red Army on 23 VII 1944 and conquered after four days of street fights (mainly in the outskirts - the German troops evacuated the city) on 27 VII 1944.
