My grandfather military service - any help

Post by ahausman@outlook.com » 16 Jul 2022 16:47

Hello,
I am loking for any informations about my grandfather - Franz Hausmann, born on 15.12.1912 Kamenka / Russia in german family.
I got EWZ documents from Mennonites Canada. In 1943 they escaped to Waldrode - today in Poland and - since 31.08.1944 he started military service as SS Schutze in SS-Panzer-Aufklärungs-Ausbildungs-Abteilung 1 (SS-Tr.Üb.Pl. "Sennelager" b. Paderborn).
Thats all I know. I will be grateful for any help/ :) news - regards Andrzej Hausman

Try contacting Bundesarchiv as they might hold a copy of his personnel file:

There is a file on him in the Berlin-Lichterfelde archive but it might be the one you have, but no harm in trying.

Thank you for the answer, I do have data from EWZ. When I contacted the Bundesarchiv they sent me a copy of his own card. I will keep looking for some news about military service
