This blog contains a collection of real events and information on these volunteers for historical research and documentation.
ϟϟ-Panzergrenadier-Regiment 25 (Norrey-en-Bessin)
Image: An unidentified Waffen-SS grenadier wearing the distinctive SS camouflage smock. The picture is taken before the infantry and panzers of the Waffen-SS moving out from Rots. At the late morning on June 9 1944, an attack was planned to seize La Villeneuve, as a starting point for a future offensive up north of 12.SS-Panzer-Division Hitlerjugend. The photographer of this series of well known photographs in Normandy is taken by the famous SS-Kriegsberichter Wilfried Woscidlo (1905 – 1990). He served with SS-Standarte Kurt Eggers both in the Soviet Union and in Normandy. Scan: Stuttgarter Illustrierte Nr 25 (1944).
