first of all "Happy new year". The reason why I start this thread is, I hope maby of you will have some background information of an fallen member from the 6.SS-Geb.-Division Nord 2. Komp. 11 Reg..
He was fallen and burried here in my region on March 7. 1945 near Lampaden in Rhineland - Platinium during an hefty battle with US - Forces wich are comming from the saar brigdeheads at Saarburg, an Wiltingen.
The battle is also well known and called "Lampaden rigde". See link:
The interessting thing is, that his grave is located on one of the orignal battlefields near Lampaden called "Dreikopf" this is the highest of the three hills there 200 meters away from the mainroute to the town Trier, which is far 17km of this point.
He was KIA by the fight against Sherman Tanks wich climp up the hill througt vineyards coming from Wiltingen and Saarburg.
He was killed form a burst of rounds of an cal. 50 BMG from the tank.
Does anybody of you have more information over
Obersturmführer Horst Köhler?
