Wow, this is strangely good timing. I was just searching today for information about Otto. My grandmother's first husband was Otto Doberschutz. He is, in fact, exactly who you are asking about. We have some scanned papers of his military records including his birthday, SS#, and party # all of which correspond to George_W's response above. We also have a scanned photograph of him with my grandmother.

Can any of you tell me any information about him and where I could get this information? We have only a little and it was very "hidden" by my grandmother so we don't know very much about him. We are trying to dig up as much information as we can about our family history. My grandmother is now dead so we're limited as to what we can get. We have an article about Maurice Papon that barely mentions him, but we're not sure what it really has to do with him.

Thank you for any help you can give!

Does anyone have any information about what happened to Doberschutz after the war? I think he was declared dead in 1948.

In November 1944 SS-Ustuf Otto Doberschütz along with large numbers of other Sipo/SD men from France had been transferred to Slovakia. Doberschutz went to Einsatzgruppe H/Sonderkommando 29 and by the end of Nov 1944 was Stützpunkleiter Tyrnau.

The lack of a post-war history may indicate he did not survive Czechoslovakia.

When typing Untersturmführer Otto Doberschütz in the Google searchengine I did find this:
Der Leipziger Otto Doberschütz(geb. 1913)absolvierte eine kaufmännische Lehre, besuchte die höhere Handelsschule, um nach mehrfachen Stellenwechseln ab 1. Juli 1935 zuerst nebenamtlich in der Schrifttumsstelle zu arbeiten. 1936 wurde er ans SD-Hauptamt nach Berlin versetzt und arbeite in der Hauptabteilung I 31(Presse und Schrifttum). 1943 ist er Führer des Grenzpolizeikommissariats Pau/Frankreich. Noch im Januar 1945 wird er zum Obersturmführer befördert.

The in Leipzig born Otto Doberschütz(born 1913), completed a training to tradesman and went to the higher tradeschool. After several different jobs he started to work in the literaturedepartment, starting on July 1st 1935. In 1936 he was transfered to the SD-Hauptamt in Berlin and started to work in Hauptabteilung(headdepartment)I 31(press and literature).
