Hi Steve, thanks for your answer. This is what I found on Schefe:

Staatspolizeileitstellen Posen :
SS – Sturmbannfuhrer Dr Robert Schefe ( 1940 - 1941 )

So, it seems that in January 1941 he had other post.

I´m particularly interested in Chef der Sipo-SD in Litzmannstadt

Thanks

Rolf

Can you explain what you mean by "Chef der Sipo-SD"?

I do not believe that Litzmannstadt has a Kommandeur der Sipo u.d. SD (KdS) until 1944 when it was Otto Bradfisch (who had replaced Schefe as Stapoleiter Litzmannstadt in 1942).

The SD-Abschnittsführer Litzmannstadt in 1942 was Dr Friedrich Buchardt.

Thanks to all of you guys.
Steve, I agree with you. Until 1944 there wasn´t a Kommandeur der Sipo-Sd in Litzmannstadt. My curiosity comes from a Feldpost I have, dated January 1941 and the stamp is Chef der Sipo-SD LITZMANNSTADT. Original 100%.
Just trying to find out who was at that post during january 1941 and if there wasn´t a Kommandeur Sipo-SD Litzmannstadt, a Gestapo or SD man could be holder of that post?

Thanks again

Rolf

With regard to Friedrich Buchardt, French McLean (The Field Men) claims that he had some involvement with SS-Polizei-Regt.2 AND the 12th SS-Armee-Korps, but I have not found any evidence to support this. Can anyone enlighten me on this matter, please? Thanks in advance.

Sorry Peter, but I don't think that this is the same person. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I just don't think it's the same guy.

Peter,
my copy of John's Führerliste does not list this Friedrich Buchardt in any spelling format. I think you are looking at wrong bloke.
Buchardt born 17 March 1909, Riga.

Buchardt was posted from SD-A Litzmannstadt to EK 9 in Witebsk in Jan. 1943.
Jan. 1944 posted to RSHA III B, Berlin
Nov. 1944 - May 1945, RSHA Verbindungsführer with the Wlassow Army.

If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Steve248 - that's exactly the information I have on Buchardt. In 1941 he was Leiter Abt.III on staff of Einsatzgruppe "B" (Nebe) and then Liaison Officer to the 4th Armee (I believe). Of course, he could have spent time with SS-Polizei-Regt.2 during this period - for experience - but I have seen no evidence to support this. As for the 12th SS-Armee-Korps, my understanding is that it was formed in Silesia from either a badly mauled Korps of the Army and/or Kampfgruppe/Korpsgruppe "von Gottberg". It was then assigned to the Western front where it was destroyed. So I cannot see any connection whatsoever with the 12th SS-Armee-Korps. I may be wrong, but I have yet to see any evidence to back this up.
