SS-Hstuf. Kurt Rybka - Request for data

Post by Michael Miller » 13 Dec 2004 20:34

Seeking any information (and if available, photo(s) in addition to the following (from John Moore's Führerliste der Waffen-SS) on SS-Hstuf. Kurt Rybka. Also interested in confirmation that he was recommended for the Ritterkreuz and instead received the Ehrenblatt-Spange des Heeres.

With many thanks in advance,

There is a short biography written about Rybka by Reinhold Sellner.

Not much, but Kurt Rybka received the Finnisches Freiheitskreuz IV. Klasse on 1 December 1941 while an SS-Untersturmführer. This leads me to believe he was assigned to "Nord" earlier in the year and perhaps took part in Operation “Polarfuchs.”

Best regards,

Rybka ceased to be CO of SS-Fallschirmjäger-Btl 500 in June 1944. He died in 1959. His RK recommendation was turned down but he did receive the EBS for Drvar.

Other Assignments?

Post by Edward L. Hsiao » 21 Dec 2004 22:07

Gentlemen!

It's too bad that there was no data available of the other assignments after Kurt Rybka left his C.O. command of SS-Fallschirmjaeger-Btl 500. I think much of his personal record was lost during the War. :(

Does anyone know how Rybka died? I see he was 42 years old at the time of his death. Also, can anyone direct me where I can buy the short biography written by Sellner about Rybka? I tried ebay, Abebooks, and Amazon with no luck.

I believe this is Rybka when he served with Germania. The photo is from Milius/Kinzmann book.
