date of death SS men 2

Postby Manstein on 30 Aug 2003 01:39

Hi, I need the death dates of these SS officers, and here are my current profiles on them:

SS-Stubf/SS-Reichsfuehrer Heiden, Erhard (b. 1900? - d. after 1945) - Chief of the SS (1927-1929), survived the war, don't know fate from there and I am only estimating his birthdate from the few biographical details I have of him.

SS-Obstuf Joel, Guenther (b. 1903- d. after January 1951) - Legal adviser to the Ministry of Justice, also Himmler's liaison to the Justice Ministry. Sentenced to 10 years imprisonment, 4 December 1947. Released January 1951, don't know what happened to him from there.

SS-Staf Lindow, Kurt (b. 1903 - d. after 1950) - Chief of the Russian POWs department in the Gestapo. Sentenced to 3 years imprisonment at the Darmstadt Trial in 1948, however, his sentence counted his internment, so he was released. In 1950, he testified at the trial of Heinrich Baab, but I think he was arrested afterwards. What happened to him from then on I have no idea.

SS-Unterstuf Loev, Lorenz (?- d. after 1941) - Head of Hans Frank's administrative office in Warsaw, sentenced to life imprisonment by SS judge Guenther Reinecke for corruption, specifically the black market selling of furs. Fate afterwards is unknown to me. I would also like a date of birth.

SS-Staf Mildner, Rudolf (1902 - d. after 1960) - Gestapo chief, Upper Silesia and Denmark, testified as a witness for the prosecution at Nuremberg. Released from custody, 1949, fled to Argentina and I believe he was alive around the time Eichmann was abducted, since Mildner seems to have met with him at some time or another.

SS-Obf Schaefer, Emanuel (b. 1900 - d. after 1945) - Security Police Chief, Belgrade, also commandanded an Einsatzgruppe during the invasion of Poland. I have no idea what happened to this butcher.

SS-Obf Schwarzenberger, Otto (1900 - d. after March 10, 1948) - Head of the Financial Office in the RKFVD. Sentenced to time served at RuSHA trial for membership in the SS. I don't know his fate from then on.

SS-Staf Sollmann, Max (1904 - d. after March 10, 1948) - Chief of the Lebensborn, sentenced to time served at RuSHA trial for membership in the SS. Same case as Schwarzenberger's.

Thanks in advance!

Notes:
* Son of the locomotive engineer Robert Hanke. One brother (killed in action).
* Religion: Protestant.
* Foreign language proficiency: French.
* Upon leasing a villa in Berlin-Grunewald for his headquarters in July 1932, Hanke commissioned the young architect Albert Speer to refurbish it. The two became friends, and Speer owed much of his success in the Third Reich to his connection with Hanke.
* Involved in an affair with Magda Goebbels, wife of his superior, the Reichsminister for Propaganda.
* Married on 25 November 1944 to Freda Freiin von Fircks (daughter of a wealthy landowner), who bore Hanke one daughter in December 1943 (Freiin von Fircks later remarried and took the name Rössler).
* While serving as commander of a Panzer IV during the campaign in France, Hanke single-handedly engaged and drove off a French tank column that had attacked the rear of 7.Panzer-Division. Rommel recommended Hanke for the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross, sending the citation directly to Hitler's headquarters. Shortly thereafter, however, Hanke offended Rommel by mentioning that as a State Secretary of the Propaganda Ministry, he technically outranked a "mere" Generalmajor. In response, Rommel sent an adjutant to intercept and quash the citation, an act of spite which caused great resentment among his troops.
