Lodz Ghetto Orpo Guard Units

Postby sylvieK4 » 02 Mar 2016 21:06

Uniformed Ordnungspolizei that served as sentry guards around the perimeter of the Lodz Ghetto. According to several sources, Police Battalion 101 performed this function from the Ghetto's 1940 inception through May 1941, when the Battalion was withdrawn to its home base in Hamburg and reconstituted. Its ranks were reportedly filled, at that time,primarily by middle age, reserve police, with the younger members being channeled into more active fighting units. My question is, once the 101 was removed from Lodz in May 1941, which Orpo units replaced it as external "wache" around the Ghetto?
