SS-Hstuf. Adolf Kraemer - which Waffen-SS combat unit?

Post by Dimitrii » 13 Jun 2016 10:35

Adolf Herrmann Rudolf Ferdinand Kraemer (short: Ado Kraemer) was a German chess champion and wine expert, during the war he mostly held a government post. However he was also an officer with the Waffen-SS as he was wounded several times. He also took part during the invasion of the low countries in 1940.

His SS-Nummer was 75 536, NSDAP-Nr: 1 053 145. He was SS-Hstuf. (1938) but don't know if this was Allgemeine-SS oder Waffen-SS rank.

Who knows his combat units?

he is not listed in Führerliste der Waffen-SS which include active, reserve and foreigner SS.

Could have been enlisted as specialists officers (Fachführer) not listed, NCO or in the Wehrmacht.
