    Thus rendering another thread useless....

    May I ask the thread starter to please re-upload it? Otherwise the moderators might as well delete the thread altogether.

    In echoing the slightly frustrating hindrance experienced by other members may I suggest that you please upload photos in the correct manner so they stay on the page for the benefits of those who cannot access the post immediately.

    Many thanks

    I would have to agree with the general ideas here on an Austrian man joining the SS. Although there must have existed a certain level of Austrian nationalism and bitterness after the recent 1938 Anschluss, I see no reason why an Austrian man would not join the Schutzstaffel - Many nationalities joined the organisation and they obviously did not have hindsight in regards to the criminality of many contingents.

    Best regards,
    Chris

    We have explored the dynamics of the SS in Austria in many threads. In fact, the SS was present in Austria from the late 1920s, and continued to operate despite its prohibition in 1933/4. Many Austrian SS men emigrated to Germany, or were imprisoned by the Staendestaat regime. The English language works on this theme are not plentiful, but it is an interesting topic and a longstanding interest of mine.

    One of my favorite stories, deals much with a few of these very same fella's . . . who lay in waiting for the Anschluss - and at the very same time it occurred - broke into the Schatzenkammer, whisking away that tiny, little piece of pointed iron . . . and sent it back to Nürnberg for their Führer. The tunnels under that city - in which it was subsequently hidden - offer a curious few hours of intrigue, to the modern-day tourist.
