Have seen the picture "bundesarchiv" before.

I'm looking for any info (or confirmation) regarding different candidates at the UFS in Ljubljana (Laibach). From different partisan reports, interrogations of deserters and post-war memories, there were several different groups, that received the training in Ljubljana. Most of the candidates were "regular" German soldiers of Waffen-SS. But then there was also Luftwaffe personnel, transferred to W-SS (at least one company in 1945) and also one company of Hitlerjugend recruits, which came in Ljubljana in March 1945 and stayed until the end of the war. [For more on HJ, see: Karl-Heinz Gülland, “Der Sound der freien Welt: Gefangenschaft mit Dolce Vita am Adriastrand,” In: Harald Stutte and Günter Lucks, eds. Hitlers vergessene Kinderarmee (Reinbek bei Hamburg: Rowolt Taschenbuch Verlag, 2014)]

Regarding foreign-born Waffen-SS personnel, there were: Estonians, Latvians, Lithuanians and French. I have gotten confirmation on Estonian and Latvian soldiers, but couldn't find anything on Lithuanians and French. Can anyone confirm this?

Plus there were three (2 NCO and one CO) courses held for the Slovenian Home Guard personnel.

In june 1944, three Waffen-Junkerschulen were specially opened for non-germanic volunteers in the Waffen-SS. Before june 1944, only SS-Junkerschulen existed.
- SS-Junkerschule Klagenfurt renamed the 1 june 1944 : SS- und Waffen-Junkerschule Klagenfurt ;
-SS-und Waffen-Unterführerschule Laibach the 27.8.1944;
- SS-und Waffen-Unterführerschule Westpreußen (Slagelse) the 1 june 1944.
Himmler said in 1944 that these Schulen were for those who are strangers to his race ( i suppose nordic-germanic race ).
All i know is that the spanish volunteers in the Waffen-SS were formed in the Waffen-Junkerschule Klagenfurt.
( Spanische-Freiwilligen-Kompanie der SS 101 was formed in Klagenfurt, Austria, Sep 1944 ).
So, non-germanic volunteers were discrimined till the end of war. No only, they had no real ss ranks ( for example, waffen-oberstürmfuhrer for non-germanics versus SS-oberstürmfuhrer for germanics . But, two exceptions for non-germanic volunteers: the Walloons and the Finnishes ).
I would know who, except the spanish volunteers, were formed in theses Waffen-Junkerschulen ? Roumanian volunteers ? Italian volunteers ? Bulgarian volunteers ? French volunteers ? Russian volunteers ? Baltic volunteers ? Ukrainian volunteers ?
Thank you for your help.
What's the source regarding the date of the renaming of UFS Laibach?
