Estn. SS-Ustuf in a Einsatzkommando

Post by Georg_S » 07 Nov 2020 11:08

Hello all,

I am going through my manuscript and writting down all kind of assignments of officers. When I now end up with an SS-Ustuf d.SD (SS-Ostuf d.WSS) he have served in first: "Sonderbattallion" later in his SSO it sats that "Sonderbtl" was "Einsatzkommando Loknja"

When I search that EK I came up with several solutions, but if this particulare EK Loknja was part of an official "Einsatzkommando" is unknown to me, but his rank in SD point me to that it might be true. To avoid that I maybe point out a pherhaps innocent member of a harmless unit as a potential Warcriminal I have to get to the bottom of this.

Any help much appriciated

Best regards

In Loknja a Sonderkommando under SS-Stbf Manfred Pechau (Einsatzgruppe A) was stationed, which took part in anti-partisan-actions in august 1942 (Aktion "Sumpffieber") - results:
389 Banditen im Kampf erschossen
1247 Verdächtige abgeurteilt und erschossen
8350 Juden exekutiert
1217 Personen evakuiert
