Re: Third Reich signatures.

Post by Project154 » 08 Aug 2021 05:25

Hello, First I would like to say thanks again to everyone who has helped read/translate on this forum, I am not sure if you know it, but your all amazing, inspirational people for all the work you have done for us!

I was wondering if anyone can make out the signature below. I know Krichbaum and Vielwerth are the other two on the page, but I am curious as to the third one. I believe be was an Obersleutnant in the Volksgrenadier Division 36? Any help would be much much appreciated 🙂 -T.D.

Hello, can You give more details ? Is the letter dated 4.8.45 ?
Who should be the Otl. u. Rgts.Kdr. ? Maybe the name of the third signature or that is the Fhr. 5. Kp. in A13 instead ? So, who Rgts.Kdr., and who Kp.Chef ?
Does A13 mean AA.13 or what ? If AA.13, then such unit was not part of 36.VGD
Which assignments have Krichbaum and Vielwerth (in the letter or at war end ?) Were they in the 36.VGD too or where ?

I’m sorry, I should have given more info.

This is from a diary entry I have, from inside the Heilbronn POW camp at war’s end, with the entry signed 4.8.45. Whoever this person is, was with Erich Vielwerth and Wilhelm Krichbaum in the camp. A13 was a section of the camp for special prisoners.

That first photo, with the Oberstleutnant + information written, is whoever this signature is, it is the description of the gentleman who signed the diary.

Vielwerth was likely with him in the 36 VGD. Krichbaum definently was not.

Any help is greatly appreciated 🙂

Hi,

You can find the full pages here:

viewtopic.php?f=36&t=251955

IMO the signature reads:

V. Hufer

Although I am not sure whether the V stands for the first initial of the christian name or maybe von Hufer.

Best regards

I appreciate the suggestions, perhaps he was not well known, maybe if anyone knows more about the 36. Volksgrenadier-Division they might know.

I have another that is curious. Apparently worked as some type of reporter on the front in the propaganda ministry, and was an actor in Hamburg in 1928?

Any help would be great!

Good evening friends
Some sellers do aim at the "ignorant" collectors to make some ( in this case "a lot of") money.
This seller "photoworld" on militaria321 offers all his autographs as original.
He has +300 (only) positive ratings !!!
He has made thousands .... and keeps on doing it !

Here a nice give away!

https://www.militaria321.com/auktion/75 ... 35%29.html

Strange how Darges looks like Günsche ...

Be aware!

Unfortunately, it has been that way for as long as there have been things to collect. There is a faker for every level of collector.

I'm reading, in awe, the amount of information in this topic! Really great to read.

Now I have a question of my own: I'm looking for the man how signed this document, it is the Generalstabsoffizier Ic from the 254. Infanterie Division during the Westfeldzug in 1940.

Hopefully you can help me out!

Thanks in advance for you help,

Erwin
