In psychology we call it "compartmentalizing". I think this is a survival technique to help guard against the painful memories that reside there. Not to mention that you wouldn't necessarily want people around you knowing that you had one of these grisly jobs. It would not raise your reputation in your community very much!
Not wishing to state the obvious, I would imagine that the desire to avoid possible prosecution or retribution might have something to do with it!

Well said! They passed away years ago and I am far, far from the town where I met them, so their secrets are safe with me. That would be big neighborhood news if somebody on the block gets prosecuted for crimes against humanity....

Hello all:
Can anyone tell me if U.S. forces established a POW camp for SS-Totenkopfverbände officers in or near Kufstein, Austria, in May 1945? Also, I've hit a dead end trying to find out what happened post-war to two specific SS men, Sebastian Wimmer (Dachau, Madjanek and Schloss Itter) and Stefan Otto (SD, also at Itter). Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers,
Steve

SS-Totenkopfverbaende is a very interesting subject, indeed.
As a matter of fact, I am currently in the process of putting the dots on the i's and crossing the t's of my 500+ page study on the "History of the SS-Wachtruppen and SS-Totenkopfverbaende 1933 - 1939". In this study the results of more than 20 years of extensive research have been brought together.
During my research I noticed that official contemporaneous photo-material is rare. For the greater part scholars therefore have to rely on photomaterial/photoalbums coming from former Totenkopfmembers.

I know there are readers/members of this forum who hold this kind of historical photomaterial.
Therefore, maybe it is an idea to make an inventory of this kind of photomaterial by inviting owners of original photomaterial/photoalbums dealing with the SS-Wachtruppen and SS-Totenkopfverbaende during 1933 - 1939 to list their treasures in this forum.

By the way, I am still looking for a publisher. References to possible interested parties are welcome per email.
I need to mention, however, that due to the subject and the citing of numerous german documents, I choose to write my manuscript in the german language.
