My Schutzpolizei Photo Album

Post by stcamp » 23 Nov 2005 19:03

These images are from a foto album I recently acquired that show a young Schutzpolizei at the start of his career. They span late 1929-1932 approx. and show life in the barricks, Polizeischule in Kiel, field and weapons training. etc. The captions that were below some of the fotos has been torn off but it is in generally good shape.

With the album came a second batch of loose fotos that start in 1940 and end in 1944. Whether they were pulled from another album or always loose I do not know. I asked the seller if she had anymore information on the man but she did not nor could she tell me where the album came from.

His name was Heinrich Thorh? and it appears he began his career in Prussia yet ended up in Auberg, Austria in 1932? It looks like based on the fotos that he deployed from there also. I have not been able to figure out what battalion he was assigned to but I narrowed it down to four possibilities. PB307, PB316, PB322, and possibly PB314. I believe that it was PB322 which was an Austrian battalion and active in the areas the fotos mention.

Auberg in 1940
The loose fotos place him in Rzesnow in 1/26/41. Rzesnow was a Polizei HQ and PB314 was stationed there. It was also the starting point for part of Einsatzgruppen C and later a Jewish getto.
Jaslo in 6/19/41
Novo Mesto in 1944


I have scanned some of the captiions that I had problems with in hopes of a translation.
