Höhere SS- und Polizeiführer "Nordost" (Königsberg)

Who was substitute for the SS-Gruppenführer Ebrecht, after he became ill 07.07.1944.

Yerger – Allgemeine-SS gives: 07.07.1944 – 09.01.1945 SS-Gruppenführer Haltermann, but is there proof of this claim? There is no record of this appointment in Haltermanns personal file and his statements after the war!

There is no proof for Haltermann because it was not him; it was Günter Hellwig:
to Aug 1944, SS-Gruf. Georg Ebrecht was deputy HSSPF Königsberg under Prützmann.
Ebrecht then had a stroke and spent the next 5 months recuperating at Zoppot on the Baltic coast near Danzig. During this time his was replaced by SS-Gruf. Hellwig.
Ebrecht went to Königsberg in Jan. 1945 to offer his services to Hellwig.
On 12 March 1945 he and Hellwig were at Pillau where at least Ebrecht flew to Berlin.
