Why is he a fascinating character? Has he charme or was he wise?

Hi Momo

Sadly I havent. A forum member told me that he is pictured in an old soft cover book by Beadle & Hartmann but I have not been able to check this.

A little more background information about Kurt Weiße's war-time career:

III. / SS-Totenkopf-Infanterie-Rgt. 11 from 1.11.1939.
Führer des 9. / SS-Infanterie-Rgt. ‘Deutschland’ 1.12.1940–1.4.1941.
Führer des 3. / SS-Infanterie-Rgt. ‘Deutschland’ 1.4.1941–2.3.1942.
SS-Infanterie-Ersatz-Bataillon ‘Deutschland’ 2.3.1942–15.5.1942.
Nachschub Kommandantur der SS und Polizei ‘Rußland-Nord’ 15.5.1942–25.8.1942.
Aufstellungsstab / SS-Totenkopfdivision from 25.8.1942.
Führer des 9. / 3rd SS-Panzergrenadier-Rgt. 25.8.1942–1.7.1943.
SS-Sonderregiment ‘Dirlewanger’ 1.7.1943–8.5.1945.

A foreign language correspondent by profession, he mustered with the pre-war SA.
Weiße married on 27 May 1939 and divorced in December 1942.

Reprimanded and punished with room detention on 28 March 1939.

Brought for trial before the SS and Police Court X, Den Haag on 19 July 1940 on suspicion of committing an offence in contravention of paragraph § 176 RStGB. (he was accused of assaulting a ten-year old boy). Although convinced that Weiße had intended to assault the child, the tribunal accepted that he had failed to carry out his intention and judged him guilty of drunkenness in uniform and punished him with fourteen days’ intensified detention.

Wounded by a shell splinter in his lower leg in September 1941.
Wounded in the knee during February 1942.

Assaulting a grenadier with a rubber truncheon at the Sennelager troop training ground on 19 December 1942, Weiße beat at least two or three other soldiers of his company in a similar fashion during the same month.

On 17 January 1943, Weiße beat Grenadier Barthel for fifteen minutes with a rubber truncheon. Seriously concussed, Barthel died in the Sennelager detention room on 18 January. Facing the field courts martial of the SS-Totenkopfdivision on 23 January 1943, the tribunal judged Weiße guilty of negligent homicide on 23 January 1943 and sentenced him to serve a term of hard labour for two cases of mishandling a subordinate, imposed a four years’ prison sentence for assault and perjury, declared him unworthy to bear arms, denied him his civil rights and ordered his expulsion from the SS (the court chairman, SS-Stubaf. Dr Barth warned his superiors that Weiße should never again be entrusted with men’s lives).

Weiße may have been incarcerated in the St. V. L. d. SS u. Pol. Danzig–Matzkau to await the confirmation of his sentence.
Ordered to the SS-Sonderkommando in July 1943, on arrival, he was placed in command of the 1. Company with the rank of SS-Hstuf. Former Sonderkommando troops recalled him possessing sadistic tendencies and a violent demeanour that knew no bounds.

On 2 September 1943, Heinrich Himmler confirmed and suspended Weiße’s hard labour penalty to a prison sentence, (permitting his immediate parole) and set aside his honour punishment (Ehrenstrafe).
