Dear Halfdan S... This one is for you :-)

Volkssturm Battalion 3/607

Josef Brettschneider took part in the Battle of Berlin as a young lieutenant. In a city surrounded by Soviet troops, he had to fight with his Volkssturm unit, although the situation was hopeless.

Josef Brettschneider was born in Düsseldorf in 1924. After school he moved to Xanten, where he studied at the Nazi Teacher Training Institute. In April 1943 he was drafted into the Wehrmacht and finally sent to a war school for officer training in Potsdam.

In March 1944, when he was just 20, he became an officer candidate in the Volkssturm Battalion 3/607. The German Volkssturm had been set up a few months before the end of the war following a Fuehrer decree of 25 September 1944. All men capable of weapons between the ages of 16 and 60 were called up to strengthen the Wehrmacht. However, the Volkssturm units were insufficiently trained and poorly armed, so their chances of survival were low.

The young lieutenant Josef Brettschneider fought with his Volkssturm battalion in April 1945 in the Battle of Berlin. In his diary he wrote: "Equipped only with infantry weapons, a few machine guns and grenade launchers, we occupy previously dug trenches on a hill at the edge of the forest. We have little hope of being able to stop the opponent effectively. Despair and worries are beginning to spread."

Josef Brettschneider spent the last days of the war in the Spandau Citadel, a fortress in the west of Berlin. After Brettschneider had negotiated the abandonment of the citadel, the Soviets took the fortress without resistance. After the war, Brettschneider remained a prisoner of war north of Moscow until September 1946.

1. Panzervernichtungs-Brigade "Hitlerjugend" is subordinated to AOK 12

It had been set up in Radebeul in February as a Großverband des Deutschen Volkssturms III contingent of members of military training camps,
mainly from the German eastern territories, which are now in enemy hands, and from Adolf–Hitler–Schülern of the 1928/29 years of military service.

Four Bataillones gathered in the Dresden area were added to the "Panzernahkampf-Brigade", and some leaders of the Bund Deutscher Mädel arrived, who were voluntarily obliged as staff service assistants. With them and about 200 young men, the staff company was set up by Obergefolgschaftsführer Mahr. By 6 February, the leadership staff of volunteer full-time leader corps members of the territories and Banne had also arrived.

In addition, there were volunteer war leaders of the HJ. Kommandeur der Brigade was initially Stabsführer Mäckel, as his deputy Oberbannführer Kern was ordered. In a traffic accident on the Bergstraße, Mäckel died a few days later, posthumously he was awarded the Knight's Cross, the War Merit Cross it with swords for his services to the German youth. His greatest merits were in the field of military training and the extended Kinderlandverschickung from the areas of the Reich that were particularly at risk of air warfare. In his place, Reichsjugendführer Axmann himself took over the brigade command as commander of the III Volkssturmaufkommando, as deputy commander Oberbannführer Kern remained entrusted with the leadership.

On the occasion of the devastating air raid on Dresden, parts of the brigade were used as salvage service, others were transferred to Radeberg.
Days after the destruction of Dresden, the entire brigade was transferred by rail transport to the Zossen military training camp for training.
There was first a visit by the youth leader of the German Reich.

Reichjugendführer Axmann presented awards to members of the Silesian Battalion who had excelled at Görlitz. The Großverband was founded in
1. Panzervernichtungs-Brigade "Hitlerjugend" renamed. In the Reichsausbildungslager I der HJ – Lager „Seeland“ – bei Klein Köris, the Panzervernichtungs-Brigade „Hitlerjugend“ was set up, its commander was Oberbannführer Ohlendorf. After completing the training in mid-March, the 1. Panzervernichtungs "HJ" for the deployment or the Heeresgruppe Weichsel (Reichsführer – SS Himmler) for the protection of the Reich capital in the area of Berlin and Frankfurt a. d. Oder with a Brigadegefechtsstand in Bad Saarow moved to the Scharmützelsee and on 20 March
subordinated to the AOK 9 (General Busse) as an army reserve for use in the rear army area. Under the responsibility of the army pioneer leader
of the 9th Army, the battalions were set up 30 – 50km behind the main battle line in the field exclusion zone of the deeply staggered defense
system in the line Beeskow – Herzfelde on both sides of the Reichsautobahn BERLIN – FRANKFURT/ODER.

For the purpose of rapid focus formation, a Kampfgruppenstab was set up in Fürstenwalde. Except for the 1. Panzervernichtungs-Brigade
between the Oder heights and the forest exclusion zone there were another two Panzerjagd-Brigaden und Armeereserven. When, after the
beginning of the Soviet Oder offensive on 16 April, the focal points at the Oder Heights near Seelow and Briezen at the XI SS – Pzk and OT. AK,
which consumed the reserves, the operational area of the brigade shifted with the intervention of the LVI. PzK (General Weidling), whose general command it was subordinated in the section Müncheberg – Harneken. Here the battalions were deployed on the occasion of the crisis in the
9. Fallschirmjäger-Division and in the fight against breaking enemy tank packs on 18.4. by parts of the 18. Panzer-Grenadier-Division and the
11. SS – Freiw. Panzer-Grenadier-Division "Nordland" replaced. Against the parts of the brigade deployed north of Müncheberg in the Märkische Schweiz near Buckow, superior Soviet tank units with accompanying infantry broke out after a barrage since the morning hours, but the positions
in the burning woodlands were held in the entire section west of Hermersdorf defended by the "Hitler Youth". The next day, the brigade was
pulled out of the fight and then intervened again in the defensive battle at Strausberg and in the Werneuchen area. After the combat mission,
the mass of the brigade was returned to the north. Parts over Berlin, and marched for other use in the army area of Heeresgruppe Weichsel,
which in its depth of Panzerbrigaden und Panzerzerstörverbänden under the Kdo. == See also == Panzer-Division Weichsel.

The 1. Panzervernichtungs-Brigade, around 24 April, "HJ" moved into a tank barrier line on Reichsstraße 167 near Löwenberg i. d. Mark between
north of Oranienburg and Gransee with the brigade command post in Vielitz. It secured the rear army area of the 3rd Panzer Army (General v. Manteuffel) in the back of the Army Division Steiner (SS – Obergruppenführer Steiner), which was deployed with a front to the south on both sides
of Oranienburg. In this position, the 1. Panzervernichtungs-Brigade "HJ" on the orders of the Reichsjugendführer Axmann, who remained in the defense area of Berlin, the Panzervernichtungs–Ersatz-Brigade „Hitlerjugend“ from Klein Köris supplied.

On 18 April he was commander of the reserve army 2 captains, bearers of the Goldene.Nahkampfspange, with 12 lieutenants and chief ensigns
from the Kriegsschul-Regiment. On the occasion of the breakthrough of the Soviet 1st Ukrainian Front from the Forst bridgehead, the
Ersatz-Brigade was alerted on 19.4. and placed under colonel Kaether (OKH). The command post of the Gefechtsgruppe Kaether was in the
Lager "Maibach I" – headquarters fes OKH – in Zossen. The Ersatz-Brigade had the order to close the Reichsautobahn BERLINER RING–COTTBUS in
the Seenenge near Teupitz. With its regular personnel, the commanded military personnel and about 50 HJ members of the DV III, it had set up
an Alarmanteilung aus two Einheiten with a total of 4 Panzerjagd-Kommandos bzw. 8 Panzervernichtungs-Trupps and positioned it at the RAB – Abzweigung Gr. Köris. On the western shore of Lake Teupitz, with its left wing, the RAD–Grenadier Regiment "Jahn" 1 (Oberstarbeitsführer Konopka) was to be connected. The attacking tip of the 3rd Guards Tank Army had made a tactical stop in Baruth to refuel, north of it stood only a weak Volkssturm-Einheiten (DV I/II) with two Sturmflak 8,8cm opposite. From the south, the 21, PzDiv. with the enemy on Teupitz smelled.

The Alarm-Abteilung /Panzervernichtungs-Ersatz-Brigade "HJ" had been replaced in the course of April 20 at Gr. Köris. Since the camp "Zeeland"
was threatened by the looming advance of the Soviet 1st Byelorussian Front from the northeast – from the Müncheberg area – and was
enemy towards the fuses of the Gefechtsgruppe Kaerther (from 20.4. in the evening under Colonel Oertel), the Ersatz-Brigade together with its civilian camp personnel – together with a branch of the RJF – is still on the evening of the 20th first to Siethen, had been transferred to Potsdam
on the 21st and had temporarily taken up accommodation in the Reichsjugendführerschule I. There Oberbannführer Ohlendorf had established the connection with the Reichsjugendführung Berlin–Charlottenburg and received the order, all parts on 23 April of the 1. Panzervernichtungs-Brigade "HJ" for integration, which was suspected at Fehrbellin. At the exit in the direction of Nauen, an unurpassable stream of refugees had to be overtaken and the Ersatz-Brigade encountered an armored Kampfgruppe der Waffen –SS of weapons, which rolled into the Reich capital
(European volunteers). For more than 2 nights, local accommodation in Läsikow had been occupied and the civilian personnel of a military
training camp had been evacuated in the Frisack area when the truck convoy reached Banzendorf, west of Gransee, in the district of Ruppin on
25 April and the command post of the 1. Panzervernichtungs-Brigade "HJ" was found in Vielitz, south of Rheinsberg.

On the occasion of his announcement on 27 April, Oberbannführer Kern ordered the previous officer z.b. V. to the staff of the
Panzervernichtungs-Ersatz-Brigade "HJ" Hauptgefolgschaftsführer Voigt, to go to the former staff quarters of the Inspector General of the Panzertruppen in Neuruppin in order to report as a liaison officer to AOK 12 via the Wehrmacht – mediation of the combat commander at the Ia

for Youth Leadership – an Adolf Hitler student as a personal order to the reserve officer of the army in need of care because of his unhealed
wounds.

At this time, the 1. Panzervernichtungs-Brigade "HJ" has the following staff:

Führer der Brigade:Oberbannführer Kern (mdFb)
Ia: Hauptmann Kunz (v. Heer Kdt.)
Stv. Ia (Ib/Ic): Gefolgschaftsführer Tschirke

The Mecklenburg Oberbannführer with Dt. Kreuz i. Gold formed with these and the IV. Bataillon. instructed according to Katerbow the
Kampfgruppe „Neuruppin“/1. Panzervernichtungs-Brigade "HJ" , who finally undersent this. SS–Bataillon Thomalla is assigned to the
III. Germ. SS– Pzkorps to Storbeck. (The events have been presented separately)

After the de-departure of the combat commander, which is unknown to them, the Kampfgruppe will be dismissed on 30.4. by parts of the
3.Marine-Infanterie-Divisaion detached. The majority of the 1. Panzervernichtungs-Brigade "HJ" is an army reserve near the headquarters of the XXXXI PzK in and around Friesack until 30.4. On 1 May, the brigade command from its command post in the forester's lodge of Schönhauser Damm takes command of all parts that have been submissed to the ordered rooms since 30.4. or are on the march there.

On the occasion of the order to the 12th Army to join Heeresgruppe Weichsel to the north, the AOK 12 gives orders to the brigade to understand the started settling movement in the direction of Mecklenburg.

Oberbannführer Kern goes to the army headquarters in Klein-Bulkow for more detailed instructions. In view of the situation with the XXXXI. PzK, signs of dissolution are noticeable – due to the independent surrender of Division v. V – and it is clear to him that he must act independently.

makes me believe totally what a small world we live in :-)
Fully agree, another story from Australia - chatted to a english lass in Melbourne, turned out we had both - two europeans down under - lived in Freemantle, WA, in the same street, in the same house, in the same room just a few months apart. Small world it is.
