SS-Obersturmbannführer Hans Siegling

Post by Mikedc » 14 Jan 2005 21:25

I need his correct birthdate if possible.

I first saw it written down on 24-12-1912 and then from a French forummember as 24 février 1912. I suspect this last one is correct and that the first person who gave his birthdate as 24-12-1912 made a typing-error.

Can somebody tell me if 24-2-1912 is the correct birthdate for Hans Siegling?????

Hi Mikedc

Just to confuse matters further, when Siegling was interviewed by the West German police he gave his birthdate as 24 February 1912 (quoted several times as this date) and his birthplace
as Gräfenhain/Thür.

His father Wilhelm, a Schulleiter, died in 1934; his mother Emma, died 1965.

In December 1975, Hans Siegling was still alive and residing in Nördlingen-Kleinerdlingen

The information in Mark Yerger's book is correct. I verified that 24 February 1912 is correct from checking multiple documents in the Personalakte of Hans Siegling that contained that date. The DAL must have contained a typo.

Dear all,

Thank you very much for the info, this is highly appreciated. And as far as I can see the evidence is pretty clear describing his birthdate being 24-2-1912 so I just write down this one as the correct birthdate.
