Here is a portrait of von Steuben taken from his personal files. Add him glasses and the confusion is possible ... or understandable.

Hi Mikedc

In 7. SS-Geb.Div. KTB dated 1.3.45 he was Hstuf. und Kdr. of III./SS-GJR 14

B:15.11.14 W-SS Capt:26.07.44 Also member of the Police

He is also listed as the last Kdr. (Maj.) of II./SS-Frw.Gren.Rgt. 36 of SS-Div. "30 Januar" from 03.45 to 05.45.

Before that he was ADC to Jürgen Stroop during the Warsaw Ghetto uprising from 18 January 1943 to 16 May 1943.

Before that he was Captain and Chef of 1./Hamburg Reserve-Polizei-Btl. 101 (as III./Pol.Rgt.25) charge with killing Polish Jews in the the town of Zamosc, Lubin District of the General Government.

Not a poster boy for the Waffen-SS.

And who would be a poster boy for the Waffen SS, I wonder?

On the subject of the Order Police in Poland. I've just read Browning's "Ordinary Men" (1992), a vastly better book than Goldhagen's, despite, or perhaps because of, its much more limited ambitions. Browning did not use any of the real names of the Hamburg Order Police in his book, which was a condition of his being allowed access to their files. Now that they are presumably all dead, have the real names been revealed?

Hi,
About Otto Meckelburg, was he the commander of the III./SS-Rgt. 14 at the time of the Otok's massacre?
Otto KUMM wrote about this massacre in his book "Vorwärts Prinz Eugen" edited by Munin Verlag.
In fact there are 3 villages, Otok, Ruda and Dolac Dolnji and thy were 834 victims, including many women and children. But only Dietsche is named in a document from the IMT. (source IMT Document D-945 "testimony of Paul Hausser")
Otto KUMM speaks of court martialled and aquitted commander.
Does it appear in the file of Meckelburg?
What was the ultimate fate of Meckelburg after the war?

Regards
Patrick

Isn't he SS-Stubaf in that picture that Harmel posted on page 1???

I cannot claim at the moment whether that is in fact Meckelburg in that picture since the face isn't really visible (but judging by that one photo it doesn't look like him to me), but if it is indeed him it cannot be early spring 1943 since he was promoted to Stubaf. in November that year.

However, these NARA photos from May 1943 do show what Otto Meckelburg looked like (with/without headgear):

...and this is a very interesting historical document including Meckelburg: this is (future) capital of Montenegro, Podgorica, on 22 May 1943, after Kampfgruppe Meckelburg captured it. The honour guard composed of members of Meckelburg's III/2 is being inspected by General Lüters. Behind him is SS-Hstuf. Meckelburg, with SS-Gruf. Phleps on the extreme left.
Podgorica suffered terribly during the war (it was bombed numerous times) and most of the old buildings were destroyed - which is why documents like this one, showing the old city, are additionally interesting.

on the Right SS Hsuf Heinrich Brichze Cmdt Stabsquartier,
Again, I cannot see clearly enough whether that is in fact Brichze, but that person's rank is SS-Ustuf. not SS-Hstuf.

Any info on Brichze, especially his pre-Handschar service?

a really worth while Mag to collect

This "Otto Meckelburg" is in fact most likely Richard Kaaserer (Kdr. I./2) in late 1942.

Old thread.

On first page names was asked about a couple of soldiers. I can now ad SS-Stubaf. Josef Kikel.
