    Default Default Wehrpass - With Translation ( one of 3 posts)

    Posting this for anyone who is interested......It's a long one. Will upload in two or three sections.

    Here is a Wehrpass. Not unlike many others except for a few things that make it a little more interesting...

    Gefreiter (Pvt 1st Class) Gottfried Schonefeld. Infantry w/special employment. Black wound badge.

    1) He was KIA and it has the stamped German Cross on the cover. I don't see many like this but could be wrong if they are not rare.
    2) Apparently this guy as part of the "special employment units" in Russia. Am told that these were "Killing Squads". Anyone know any differently?
    3) The complete Wehrpass has been translated into english. So I decided to post each page of the Wehrpass that has writing and a copy of the translation
    4) There was some additional paperwork that I have included as well

    Happy reading. I have a two others like this, a Kriegs and a Luft, (not as interesting as this one). If anyone is interested I happy to do the same type of post.........

    I don't think he was part of any 'killing squads'. The z.b.V units could of been for anything including convoy/supplies escort or security guards. z.b.V stands for zur besonderen Verwendung (for special use). The last unit might have some dark connotations however, as Bialystok had a ghetto so he might of been involved in guarding the perimeter of that but there is so little information on the units he served in that it is hard to be sure. He was dead a few months before the liquidation of the ghetto so wasn't involved in that.

    Thanks Hucks. Will add this to my notes........great help!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
