Thanks for information Martin,
I believe he was the only brigadeführer alive.
Best Regards

I am sad that he has died. He was the first Waffen-SS veteran I wrote to and he sort of started it all - my interest in the Waffen-SS and its personalities. :(

:cry: :cry: :cry:

May he rest in peace.

I am glad that he put many of his memories and experiences to paper; we are all enriched by his contributions to military history. RIP.

Hi!
Sorry - I don't think its a good idea to post such tings on public boards.
There are plenty of so-called antifascists (most of them are dumb youngsters after all) in Germany and I don''t thinkl that it would be nice if some of these idiots would show up at the funeral to "celebrate" :(

Not wanting to insult you, but I think its better to remove the dates.

Best wishes and thx
Florian
