    Enter name and death date, if known. There are errors and the lists are far from complete.

    Sadly SS-Oberscharführer Georg Claußen is not recorded on the VDK site nor is there a record of his passing.

    Thank you for checking! So what does it mean - maybe this person didn't exist and the death notice is fake, what do you think?

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.

    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    As Paul D says, the fact he isn't recorded on the Volksbund Grabersuche site or a casualty card doesn't exist is no red flag to your death notice. i have not looked into him further but I'm sure there will be references to him, as there are to his wider family in the notice. It's just a pity that we can't expand on the circumstances of his injury and subsequent death.
