    SS-Sturmbrigade Dirlewanger

    Recommended Posts

    Hi out there! 

    I recently came across this document of an unteroffizier in the Dirlewanger Brigade. (The 36th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS) I was surprised to find items from that Brigade who all wants to hide and forget. The Division were composed of criminals expected to die fighting in the front-line. The unit was led by Oskar Dirlewanger, a known sadist and condemned rapist. In may 1945 Dirlewanger´s men were taken into Sovjet captivity but he fled westwards and was arrested in Altshausen. Dirlewanger died on 7 june 1945, killed either by soldiers or former concentration camp inmates, the exact details are unknown. Rumours says that Dirlewanger was found slowly grilled on a fire.

    I'm afraid that this is a fantasy piece and is not a genuine item. It - and others like it - are flooding the market from Eastern Europe.

    Here are just some of the many other versions of these fake pieces...

    Well, it was to good to be true! If you look at my Dirlewanger piece and compare it to Reischsicherheithaupamt, the written letters are very similar to each other. Maybe the same  forger?
