it is in fact a very interesting question, to know the logic with which the Catholic or Protestant chaplains were chosen by Germans in a "silent Church" atmosphere!

Golden Party Badge !

Gerdan
Someone with edit privileges ought to update the feurth wiki article — it lists only the Golden Party Badge and two post-war civil awards:
Quote:
...On March 21, 1934 , Eduard Putz received the "Golden Party Badge of the NSDAP", in 1958 he was awarded the title of "Church Council" and in 1975 the city of Erlangen presented him with the Citizen Medal , a distinction comparable to the Golden Citizen Medal of the city of Fürth.
The EKII, KVK I & II w/Swords, and Ostmedaille ought to be listed (with documents to support).

Regarding the "which religion" question I would imagine any Catholic priest as a GPB holder. But, do we have any listing as such? The one Deutsche Christen minister I am familiar with was himself only a regular party member.

Hello Gentlemen,
This is a fascinating soldbuch! I hope PanzerElite will show the back side of the EK2 document so that we can see the justification for the award. Nevertheless, Thank you for sharing,
Curtiss

The scene in Band of Brothers comes to mind where the chaplain is providing last rites to the dying out in the open while machine gun fire and explosions are going off all around him.

In my post #22 I left out a critical word: I would NOT imagine any Catholic priest as a GPB holder.

It is also my idea, but it is a theme that still needs to be explored ... I find more stories of active or passive resistance instead collaboration between Catholics ... for example an interesting esperienze of a “Kriegspfarren”” who I read these days

I missed p.2 of the soldbuch, but the link says he was a Protestant minister, married with children.

But as Panzerelite stated, that the EK2 doc has
the reasons written on the back, it might be interesting if he could show us the backside of the EK 2 award doc !
And, just like Jeff, I would also be interested to see more of the Soldbuch. How long did he stay with 183. Inf.Div. ?


Best regards,

Archi
