Unternehmen "Freischütz"and 707.Inf.Division

Post by Joda » 13 Apr 2022 15:49

As stated also by the thread below, the 707.Infanterie Division took part also to Unternehmen Freischutz:

viewtopic.php?f=51&t=154370&p=1346368&h ... z#p1346368

Is it known exactly which units of the 707.I.D. took part to the operation? All the Division or some elements of specific battallions..?

Many thanks in advance (hope this section is correct for my question..!)

dear all,
trying to put a definitive "point" to the active service of 707.I.D. during Operation Freischütz, is there a wartime document (microfilm roll extracted document) showing the forces involved in the operation?
Is there a document showing the 707.I.D. linked with Freischütz?

Many thanks in advance

Thanks Orlov,
Ba-Ma is very very "burocratic" and hard to contact. All that looks simple, they turn to be quite impossible.
Anyway thanks for your reply, hope some guy own them...

Fortunately, docs for Unternehmen "Freischütz" survived - there is no docs about the liquidation of the Jews from Kletsk (Klezk/Kleck).

Dear Joda!
Please write to BA-MA for PDF lub paper copy. I only got the bill after sending the copy. With 200 pages- it's about 100 EUR. I write to Ludwigsburg and they send me the entire archival fond (if you don't ask for individual pages). It's simple for them - either they have already scanned or 200 pages are scanned in up to half an hour. I remind you that it is obligatory to write in German to them.
