Recommended Posts


Signature of Gen.Lt. Hans Freiherr von Boineburg-Lengsfeld, while commander of Greater Paris in 1944.

Recipient is the Lt.Colonel Kurt von Kraewel then commander of a Sicherungs Regt. stationed in Paris who on 20.July 1944  was tasked by Gen.v. Boineburg to arrest all SS and Sicherheitsdienst members. That mission was successfully accomplished. After the collapse of the coup they were released under a pretext. Both officers evaded any consequences  and survived the war.

BTW: v. Kraewel was recipient of the German Cross i.Silver with date of 8.March 1943 while on staff duty on the Eastern Front. This writer is the custodian of v. Kraewel's surviving military documents.
