10.02.1944 als Kommandeur beurlaubt, weil er entgegen Korpsbefehl den Kamenka-Abschnitt im ostwärtigen Don-Bogen nicht bis zum letzten Mann verteidigt hatte. Die Vorwürfe kamen vom KG XXX. AK, General Maximilian Fretter-Pico. Bis zur Rehabilitation weigerte sich Schwerin, die ihm bereits am 04.11.1943 verliehenen Schwerter entgegenzunehmen. Sein Vertreter war Günther von Manteuffel 10.02.-15.03.1944.
15.03.1944 - 30.04.1944 wieder Kommandeur der 16. Panzergrenadier-Division

10.02.1944 as a commander on leave, because he had not defended the Kamenka section in the eastward Don Arch until the last man. The allegations came from KG XXX. AK, General Maximilian Fretter-Pico. Until the rehabilitation, Schwerin refused to accept the swords already given to him on November 4, 1943. His representative was Günther von Manteuffel 10.02.-15.03.1944.
15.03.1944 - 30.04.1944 again commander of the 16th Panzergrenadier-Division.

Reason: "Kaleu" is Marinejargon, not the official abbreviation for Kapitäneutnant; this is Kptlt.!
