Gustav-Adolf Scheel held the rank of SS-Obergruppenführer by the end of the war, and there are rumors that Karl Wolff and Hans-Adolf Prützmann got promoted to the rank SS-Oberst-Gruppenführer on April 20, 1945.

Hi Manstein,

what is your source for Prützmanns promotion to SS-Oberst-Gruppenführer on 20.04.1945? Was he also promoted to Generaloberst der Polizei?

Wolff and Prützmann were not promoted to SS-Oberst-Gruppenführer. After the war, Wolff gave his rank as SS-Obergruppenführer. Prützmann could not be asked as he had committed suicide.

Hi !

SS-Gruf. u. Gen. Lt. d. W.SS u. d. P. Jürgen Stroop said that before end of II World War (maybe 20.04.1945 ?) Prützmann was promoted to grade SS-Oberst-Gruppenführer. But any proof doesn't excist.

Max.


How can you explain that on his gravestone Generaloberst A.D. is written?

But I agree, it is all confusing because in the document of the surrender of all german troops in Italy, resulting of Wolff's treachery, his rank appears to be SSOGF.

It isn't. His gravestone reads "General a. D. Karl Wolff 13.5.1900 - 15.7.1984".

Although I listed him as Gruppenführer I am doubting that the promotion ever occured there is nothing in the SS Personalveränderungsblatt for 30 Jan 1945 and nothing in his personal file. Can anyone else comment

Hi,

A French writer, Jean Mabire, who met a few SS generals and probably knew him gives his rank as Gruppenführer.

i have a question:
