Arnolds Točs - SS-Jagdverband Ost

Post by Orlov » 18 Mar 2022 11:07

Can I ask for help and a hint about the person of Arnolds Točs, who served in the SS-Jagdverband Ost, and after the war he fought in the ranks of the Forest Brothers. In which the archive can be information about his military and post-war activity

Hi,

Arnolds Točs was from Latvia. Unfortunately I don't have any other information.

Kind regards,

VJK

There is also a long article from a German historian Björn Felder about the Latvian contribution to the SS-Jagdverband, I have to check if Tocs is mentioned in this article.

Dear Robert

Thanks a lot for this last link - this first is agitprop. But "Mit Lettland leben - mit Lettland sterben. Der SS-Jagdverband Ost - Unternehmen "Wildkatze" und die Vorbereitungen von antisowjetischen Partisanen in Lettland (1944-1945)" is very interesting.

Best regards Orlov
