    Church Memorial in Bavaria

    Hi Folks:

    I've been going visiting many churches while I'm in Germany for three (3) years and found many war memorials and this has been the 1st where I've found SS listed....but with "??" for "SS"

      Note the one soldier listed “Westen” 8 Jan 45 probably in Battle of the Bulge while most died in Russia

        Well, that's one way to deal with what has become for some an offensive symbol. Not entirely objectionable I suppose, perhaps even somewhat tasteful given the setting. The censorship even looks like it might be reversible should sentiments ever change in the future. Only draws attention to itself if you ask me. How ironic.

          SS U.S.B.F is not a rank … SS-Ostbaf would be the correct abbreviation for SS-Obersturmbannfuhrer. SS-Strm would the correct abbreviation for an SS-Sturmmann

            I wouldn’t be too picky on the abbreviations.... maybe the civilian didn’t have the official SS rules & regulations handy....or this website to ask for your input.

              At least ranks are listed, that is not always the case. Example our Friedhof..

                Visit Bayreuth if you are near Vilseck or Graf.
