SS Administrative College Berlin bombed 22-23 November 1943

Post by Peter » 04 Jul 2019 10:13

I have read that the college and associated accommodation areas were damaged on the night of 22-23 November 1943 in a bombing raid.
Please can anybody help me with details of the extent of the damage or names of any of the officers who were casualties.
Also any leads to photos of this establishment during the period when it was occupied by the SS.
thanks

I am uncertain Georges, were both damaged on that night ?
I made notes from a US file which quoted the Berlin Civil Authorities listing of buildings damaged that night.
thanks

That translation to English is a bit weird. A college? That suggests higher education...
I have only a partial list of damaged objects on that day in German, there is a Hochschule and Institut, but nothing to do with SS. To start with, we have to be sure which SS building they meant.
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Do you mean the SS-Wirtschaftsverwaltung-Hauptamt complex in Unter den Eichen? I believe it was damaged during an air raid in 1943, but I don't know the date.

I suspect that I shall have to return to the source Max, thanks.

I believe it was a translation of a German document done in the US in the late 1940's, no German language left only the interpretation, which as we all know can be dicey.
thanks

“SS Administrative College” mentioned again:

And here, see the name Roy Alfred Dabnor

Et cetera, et cetera if you google “SS Administrative College Berlin 22/23 November 1943”. So must be a widespread mistake.

Hello Waleed,

Thank you for the references. I have bookmarked a couple of articles by Fred Vogels aready, but haven't seen this one. There're many issues with translations, as my grandpa told me. His sister lives in Berlin now and they regularly talk over Skype.
