4543a/ Berlin paid tribute to the fallen soldiers of the movement.
In the midday hours on the 7 November 1943 at the Reich capital, a simple ceremony was held at the memorial honoring the fallen of the movement. The Deputy Gauleiter of Berlin, Deputy Görilitzer laid a wreath. Our picture shows Staatsrat Görlitzer at the memorial of the fallen at Fehrbelliner Platz in Berlin during the wreath laying ceremony.

4543b/ Berlin thanks the fallen of the movement.
At noon on 7 November 1943, a commemoration ceremony was held at the memorial of the fallen of the movement in the Reich’s capital at Fehrbelliner Courtyard. A representative from Berlin, Gauleiter Gorlitzer, laid a wreath at the ceremony. The picture shows a moment during the remembrance at the memorial of the fallen at the Reich’s capital at the Fehrbelliner Courtyard.

4548/ Day and night on watch.
The men of our coastal batteries are always on watch whether hostile aircraft are flying or not. The Crow's nest constantly scan the horizon.

Hi Todd,

In reading the captions on your notes #3690, 91 and 92 I noticed reference to a "Berlin Deputy Gauleiter Görlitzer" -- a name that was unfamiliar to me -- so I checked my copies of Mike Miller's "Gauleiter," Volumes 1 and 2, and found no biographical reference to this person. Wikipedia confirms that Artur Görlitzer was indeed Deputy Gauleiter of Berlin from March of 1933 till he and his wife committed suicide on April 25, 1945; he was also a Member of the Reichstag and held a number of other offices, as well.

Hopefully Mike Miller will see this note and add Artur Görlitzer to a future volume of "Gauleiter."

Cheers,

Br. James

Thanks Br. James and Tom. If Mike need images for books, I may have some he can use in my collection.
