Hello Ultima

Many Thanks for this, great help. In Sweden we have a ring above the A so the correct name of the town is "Borås"

Best regards
Georg

Hello all,


I am writing down the info on SS-Stubaf./SS-Ostuf. Kurt Alber, bon 1908. But there is some strange things that I want to check if someone knows more about this.
When I do search on him there is several photos from KB Archives and Wikipedia Commons that he is the photgrapher of several known photos such as Lino Masarie and Otto Skorzeny, one source claims that he also was attached to SS-Div. "Wiking" for some time. But his SSO doesn`t say anything about SS-"Wiking", "Totenkopf" or SS-Jagdverbande.

The original version of Fhr. liste der NARA has three different units for his service I have without "Totenkopf" and SS-Jagdverbande 17 units in total (from 1930 to 1944). His SSO held also very nice photos of him as SS-Uscha., SS-Ustuf. and in civilan clothes.

If anyone also know his date of death I would appriciate it a lot.

Best regards

Georg,
I think you are beginning to see the mammoth task you have set yourself....and you are only on the letter 'A'. As I said in our email exchanges, I wish you luck in your task. It's one I once considered, but quickly disregarded it due to the enormity of the undertaking. There will be quite a few gaps in photographic material and factual material, and once that occurs, the whole project begins to lose credibility. But who knows, you might succeed where many have failed? I genuinely hope so.
All the best,
Max.

Hello Max,

Yes I know that I have a major work infront of me, but actually it goes very well. My SS / Waffen-SS Fhrliste will only have the SS-Files of the SS-Personalhauptamt, SS-Junkerschulen and SS-RuSHA as main source so the task isn´t that impossible. The only thing that the list can lack is deathdate and of course a photo. I know that many want the list to have photo (today I have 404 photos on officer with Letter A) of every officer but I am aware that´s a impossible task, so my goal is to have 50% , if that is enough I can only leave to the reader. So far is the Vol 1 (A) around 500 pages and I have only 5 rolls left to ad (of the A3343 SSO) then I am waiting on several rolls from SS-RuSHA, wich will end my work on Vol 1.
Why I only ask about A at this moment is the reason that it´s Vol 1, I am also working at the same time on the others volumes, but as A will be the first I concentrate the main work on that.

Why I started this work is that my copy of the Waffen-SS Fhrliste from NARA have 9 pages for all the officers on letter A, as an example Ekkehard Albert (SS-Ostubaf) 6 lines with units he served in since he entered the SS, why the colonel (ret) who made the original Fhrlist didn´t list all the other units is a mystery to me. My file for Ekkehard Albert has 23 lines of units. See attached sceendump. Many of the Allgemeine-SS officer doesn´t have as many units as an officer of the Waffen-SS. See Emil Alafberg as example from the Allg.-SS

But I also want to give a special thanks to those who help me with my project, the line of people growes every day and I am very greatful for the help you provide for me. You will all be mentioned in the books.

Best regards
Georg

Georg,

I love how you have taken this project by the horns and the samples you have sent me! Though it is a very laborious task, it will have a feeling of accomplishment like the massive work put out by Tessin ages ago with Biblio-Verlag! We always need future work and authors to add more information and fill the gaps of the past! Like Max has done with his books, your books will be your footprint in the sand as well!

Erich
