SS Hauptsturmführer Günther Schwägermann

Post by Rudolf Sandig » 28 Oct 2006 22:03

Hello,

Who knows what happened to the SS Hauptsturmführer Günter (or Günther) Schwägermann after the war ?

You remember that Schwägermann was the Goebbels' personal Adjudant since 1940 until May 1, 1945. He lived the last hours in the bunker and was able to escape from Berlin to the west.

I just know Günter August Wilhem Schwägermann was born on July 24, 1915 in Germany. I would like to know if he's still alive, or the date of his death.

It would great if someone could show a picture of Günter Schwägermann.

Thank you very much and sorry for my poor "english".

R.S.

Thank you very very very much for this picture Helly Angel. It's the first one I see.

Would you know what Schwägermann did after the war ? Do you know when he died ? He lived the last days in the Führer Bunker but historians or writers didn't tell anything about him in their books (the books I read about this subject).

Thanks again,

R.S.

Well my english is terrible but he survived to the Bunker, Goebbels asked him that he must shoot inhis head (Goebbels´s head) after the suicide operation to care that he was dead but Günther couldn´t because he felt good feeling for Goebbels, he ordered this to other SS NCO. After the war he was interrogated by Colonel Michael Musmanno, I have the book but in spanish let me read and make the translation.

Best,

Necropost: Does anyone know if Günther Schwägermann is still alive, and if so, has he written any memoirs?
