I'm interested in seeing some of these Armenian names that posted to Dirlewanger for I have only found Ukrainian, Russian, and one Latvian. Do you have any sources backing this?Armenische_Legionar wrote: ↑14 Feb 2005 17:21Hi
Armenians like SS formation were formed in the end of 1944. Germans were joined some reg.s from 812, 814 and I/73 and formed an SS regiment or more like a Waffengruppe. It was a part of Caucasian Cavallery Unit SS.
Waffengruppe "Armenien". But without of this, more than 1000 Armenians was already been a part of SS, So for example in Dirlewanger or in 30th SS division (rus).
