SS-Stubaf. Georg Wippern - Revised per post by Thomas H.

Postby Michael Miller » 21 Dec 2002 17:10

Thomas pointed out a discrepancy in the post below as it originally appeared- I had stated that Wippern joined the SS ca. 1933, basing that on his SS-Nr. (which actually indicates a later date of enrollment), and that that he ENTERED the SS as SS-OSTUF. on 1. JUN. 1937.

Best wishes and thanks again to Thomas,

Dear Michael

The informations about Wippern are very intresting. I have only one problem: You said he enterd ca. 1933 in the SS, but below you write that he entered as SS-Sturmführer (1.3.1937) in the SS. What is correct ??
