State Funerals in the Third Reich

Post by roger-moor » 02 Jan 2009 19:12

Hi all,

I am interested in State Funerals in the Third Reich in the second half of the war - i.e. roughly from Heydrich's funeral in June '42 onwards...

I have a couple of names - Adolf Wagner in '44, Viktor Lutze in '43. But what about others? Hans von Tschammer und Osten died in 1942, and what about those that were killed in the 20th July attempt? ... and Roland Friesler?

It seems to me that state funerals declined in the THird Reich after Heydrich - is this the case? And if so, is it just a symptom of the tide of the war turning, or was there some conscious decision made against them?

If anyone can shed light on these issues, i'd be delighted to hear more.

Thanks

Roger Moorhouse

Excellent, thanks all. Lots of names to research further....

I am specifically interested in state funerals in Berlin, which were then followed by a burial in Berlin... so if any of you can give a name fitting those criteria off the top of your heads....

Thanks again..

RM and Transpspeer,
It is a crazy twist of life that Molders was killed returning from the State Funeral of Ernst Udet!! Another State Funeral for you: Julius Schreck- was given a State Funeral by Hitler in(1936)

RM,
I am not positive,but one would think that Wilhelm Friedrich Loeper would have received a State Funeral in October 1935. Also, Franz Kutschera may have received a State Funeral in February 1944 and everyone knows that Hindenburg had one in 1934. Paul Ludwig Troost was eulogised by Hitler in March 1934 and Hitler annually laid a wreath on his grave, but I don't know if his was a State Funeral.

-Generalfeldmarschall Eduard Freiherr von Boehm-Ermolli- was given a State Funeral in Vienna in (December 1941)
-Wilhelm Friedrich Loeper- (October 1935 ?)
-Paul von Hindenburg- received a State Funeral in (1934)
-Franz Kutschera- (February 1944 ?)
-Paul Ludwig Troost- (March 1934 ?)

RM,
Hans Kerrl died December 15,1941,in Berlin and as Reich Minister for Church Affairs one would think that he would have been given a State Funeral.

-Hans Kerrl- (December 1941 ?)
