SS-Obersturmbannführer Erich Braun

Post by Mikedc » 28 Dec 2004 19:19

I have two different versions regarding this officers SS-number.

SS-Obersturmbannführer Erich Braun,

First source is saying SS-nr. is 43.733.
Second source is saying SS-nr. is 42.733


If somebody knows the correct one, just let me know.


Thanks,
Mikedc

Hello Michael,

Thank you very much, that's what I wanted to know. I myself thought the 42.733 was just a typing-error but because it was also a very reliable document(J. Moore's 4. SS-Polizei-Pz.Gren.Div. Officer Listing)I thought I should ask the forum.

So thanks for clearing this one up, apparently a type-error occured in the document from J. Moore.


Greetings,
Mikedc

Hello Jérôme,

Thanks for sharing but Michael Miller already gave the party-number. And there's also a very large bio in Personen-Lexikon der NSDAP, so that's covered.

I only wanted to know the correct SS-number.


Thanks,
Mike

Is he the same Erich Braun who later became the commander of SS-PzG-Rgt 26?
