Julian Scherner photo

Postby itaiv40 » 24 Apr 2009 20:06

Hi, I thought this pic from 1939 of the elusive and camera-shy Julian Scherner may be of interest. (I couldn't save it and post it here because it is in GIF format. Anyone know how to do it?).

Very clear photo - almost looks like it was taken today! This is SS officer who was portrayed in the film "Schindler's List", right?

This photo almost looks like a photo still from a modern film. Thanks for posting the link - I have never seen a picture of Scherner before.

As it has already been published on the web here is the best I can do with that .gif for you.

Thanks for posting this Michal - now I've seen 2 photos of the elusive Scherner. What was his fate after the war? Was he executed?

Query to Forum regarding location of death of Julian Scherner

At his final trial on 16 October, 1944, disgraced former SSPF Krakau SS-Oberführer Julian Scherner was pronounced guilty of the various charges by the SS-Gericht, verurteilt und degradiert (sentenced and demoted) to SS-Hauptsturmführer der Reserve and – although still nominally attached to the SS-Personalhauptamt (and retained his Allgemeine-SS rank) – posted as a Reserveführer to SS-Sturmbrigade Dirlewanger, that very day detraining at Diviaky railway station to quell the Slovak Revolt. When Dirlewanger’s infamous command was nominally upgraded to ‘Division’ in February 1945, the corpulent and bespectacled Scherner served as IIa (Divisional Adjudant).
SS-Hauptsturmführer der Reserve Julian Scherner was reported killed on 28th April, 1944, near Märkisch Buchholz during 9.Armee’s desperate attempt to break out of the rapidly-collapsing 'Kessel von Spreewald' (‘Halbe Pocket’). But other (more recent?) accounts maintain that his body was found on that date in Puszcza Niepołomnicka (Niepołomice Forest) in southern Poland.

Possible inconsistencies:

- Niepołomice is well to the east of Krakau/Kraków, and
- by 28.4.45 the nearest German front was over 100 kms to the southwest near Mährisch-Ostrau/Ostrava in northeastern Moravia
- 36. Waffen-Grenadier-Division was bleeding to death in the 'Kessel von Spreewald' some 500 kms to the west, and
- had never served within 200 kms of the Krakau/Kraków area.

So, what the Geschämenwordenbradentorte was Scherner doing in the Niepołomice Forest that his body was found there ...???
