SS Ustuf FROMMHAGEN, Kdr 3. Zug/4./SS Heimwehr Danzig


Could this be Erich frommhagen who later became adjutant at Auschwitz? He served with SS-Totenkopf Sturmbann "Gotze" which later became "Heimwehr Danzig"!

Anyone?? Thanks

Hello trbooks,

Apparently this is the same man.
I've found the following somewhere else on this forum.

Erich Frommhagen - adjutant 1940-41 at both Auschwitz and Neuengamme
later served in the "Totenkopfdivision" 1942-45
- SS PZGD FELD ERSATZ BATT III
- Kdr.I./Pz.GR.6
- Kdr.II./Pz.GR.6
KIA 1945
Also served in SS-TV Brandenberg 1938-39, SS-TK 4 and SS-Heimwehr Danzig 1939.


But all info is a bit confusing as well because in yet another post someone said he ended up being commander of
I. Bataillon with SS-Panzer-Grenadier-Regiment 6 'Theodor Eicke'. And he was KIA while being commander of this unit. There was no date given for the fact he was also commander of II. Bataillon.
Also nothing about his ranks, SS-number and so on. The only thing I know is that he was born on 27-2-1912.
Hopefully somebody can give us some more info about this officer, would be much appreciated.

Greetings,
Mike

Thanks for doing the list and putting it up here for all of us to see.

Its good to see a forum member doing something for the good of all the collectors and researchers.

Its a shame that others dont follow your example.

Hey Mark,

I agree, it's a great list. I'm now occupied trying to find out the first names of the officers mentioned with only their
familyname. For some this will probably work, for others not because I already did see alot of unknown(to me at least)names.

Greetings,
Mike

SS-Obersturmführer Bredemeier could be identical to Willi Bredemeier.
SS-Hauptsturmführer Urbanitz could be identical to Eric Urbanitz.
SS-Untersturmführer Gnabs could be identical to Gerhard Gnabs.

I have all three officers in my files and the information I've have could match with their service within
the SS-Heimwehr Danzig. I don't say it matches but it's highly possible.

Mike

What is needed is to see the personel records of the proposed christian names this would give the entilement. This roll has taken me quite a time but growing nicely.
