WAFFEN-SS WEHRPASS

UNALTERED ID-DOCUMENT FROM A GUARD AT MAUTHAUSEN CONCENTRATION CAMP

This very interesting historical document was issued February 2,1943 to Andreas Brinsky in Koenigsberg, Germany. He was directly assigned to one of the Death Head units at Mauthausen concentration camp. Late war Waffen SS Wehrpass to Concentration Camp guard Andreas Brinsky. A Guard with 4/SS T. Stuba Mauthausen/Oberdonau, February to May 1942, then moved to 1/ss Totenkopf Strumbann Mauthausen until February 1944. he then moved to 4/SS T. Stuba Mauthausen Oberdonau until September 1944. He was then called up for front line service, being posted to K.M.V. Boehmen until October 1944, when he moved to 10th SS Pz. Gren. Btl “Frundsberg” during which time Frundsberg took part in the Counter offensive against the British XXX Corps during the Battle for Arnhem, and the final German counterattacks against the "Arnhem Corridor". On 27th October 1944 remaining elements of the First Allied Airborne Army evacu-ated the Arnhem Corridor and the Division was sent to Geilenkirchen in Germany, to rest and refit. After this no further units are shown in the pass. Photo is complete in the front but completely blank, having been water or chemically damaged or deleted. (It is possible a photographer could treat this photo with developer and redevelop it). Weapons training includes SmG 37, LMG 26, Steyr pistol 12/08 and MPi. “Schmeisser”. 20th April 1944 Brinsky was promoted to SS Sturmmann. Inside the book is a page from an equipment issue document (possibly from his Soldbuch?), from ‘KMV Böhmen’ dated September 1944 and listing all the combat gear Brinsky was issued with for front line service. Also what looks like a small receipt in a Baltic or Balkan language? The book is in marginal condition, being water damaged and very dry, but whole and fully legible. The photo again seems almost purposely erased – maybe by Brinsky.

Brinsky served from February 1943 to May 1943 in the 4.SS-Totenkopf-Sturmbann in Mauthausen, was then transfered to the 1./SS-Totenkopf-Sturmbann Mauthausen and in September 1944 back to 4./SS-T.-Stuba

Brinsky was trained on the regular rifle, the heavy and light machine guns, Steyr pistol and "Schmeisser" submachine gun.
