Sounds interesting!
Does anyone perhaps know if he is still alive?

Best wishes

I very much doubt whether Schmitz was with any SD-Kommando (that is, Kommandos of Einsatzgruppe D) in the Crimea in 1941.

No I'm sure that he wasnt within an Einsatzgruppe, there is no evidence of that at all, but his SS-PA does make specific reference to
Krim - 1941.

It looks as if he was at the top of the SS/SD league for anti-partisan operations in terms of being out in the field and leading from the front.

Steve
VERY grateful for the additions mate, especially the confirmation that he was based from Triest, that was a suspicion which set me on this enquiry as a part of my research into OZAK 1944/45.

thanks Pete

Would there have been a photo in "Das Schwarz Korps" when his DK/Gold was awarded 2 July 1944 ?

If anybody is able to advise it would be appreciated.

I have never had such a struggle to find a photo of an officer and this one was awarded DK/G !

Thanks
