    Default Special German Soldiers

    Hauptmann d. R. (Captain of Reserves) Egon AgthaGermany’s highest decorated Ordnance Officer

    Aghta, Egon_Hauptmann d. R..jpg Aghta, Egon_Hauptmann d. R.1.jpg

    Egon Agtha was born on January 29th, 1918 in Berlin. He joined the Wehrmacht in autumn of 1938.
    In 1939/1940 Agtha successfully completed the Wehrmachts first War Ordnance Seminar at the weapon-technological school in Halle (Saale). After the final examination he was provided to the Luftwaffe (german air force).
    Due to an early explosion of a british dud in early 1942 at Sachsenhausen near Berlin Agtha (by that time “Oberfeuerwerker” = Ordnance Sergeant Major) suffered severe injuries at both his eyes which left him “practically blind” according to the expertise of t he Wehrmacht’s medical service.
    But Egon Agtha didn’t give up on himself, at the “Silex Business School for Blind Persons” he was reskilled and subsequently passed the Officers’ schooling. As a Lietenant he returned to the Heer (Army).
    The achievements of the Wehrmacht’s Ordnance Personnel was measured with help of a point system. The disarming of e.g. a bomb with long-term detonators was honoured with 9 points. A soldier needed 150 points on his “account” to be awarded the Iron Cross 2nd Class, 450 points for the Iron Cross 1st Class, 2000 points for the German Cross in gold. The award of the Knight’s Cross was not intended at all.
    Egon Agtha however was awarded this decoration because of his numerous deployments on February 3, 1945 as the leader of an ordnance squad in the Luftgau III (district) Berlin. Five weeks later, on March 12, 1945, for his sustained services –due to the continuous allied bombing raids- he was even awarded the Oakleaves to the Knight’s Cross as 778th soldier of the Wehrmacht by Adolf Hitler. Furthermore he was decorated with the Wounded badge in Gold because of his severe eye injuries.
    Unfortunately Hauptmann Agtha was not destined to live to see the end of the war. On May 2nd, 1945 he and other members of his squad were killed in action in a firefight with soldiers of the Red Army during an attemptto break out of the encircled city of Berlin. Agthas comrade, Ordnance Sergeant Major Franz Böhm burried him near the Charlotten Bridge in Berlin-Spandau where the life of this brave officer had ended. After the war german war grave ministration salvaged the mortal remains of Hauptmann Agtha and buried him in his final resting place at the cemetery “In den Kisseln” in Berlin-Spandau.

    He was certainly proficient at disarming unexploded ordnance. If one disarming equalled 9 points. That's at least 200 bombs for the tally of his medals, not counting Knights Cross!

    It's a shame that Germany fought in WW2 and was devastated, but it's not a shame that they lost. If Germany hadn't lost, we would have been stuck with Hitler and his cronies.........

    Hauptmann (Captain) Julius Erasmus - "The gravedigger of Vossenack (Hurtgenforest)"

    julius_erasmus.jpg

    Julius Erasmus was born on February 16, 1895 in Aachen. Before the war he has been a textile manufacturer. In WW2 he served as a Captain in an engineer unit and took part in the battles in the Hurtgenforest himself. His remarkable achievements however started when he returned from the war, just to find out that his entire family was killed in the Battle of Aachen. From then on he lived withdrawn in a cabin in the Hurtgenforest.
    "In summer of 1945 I returned to Vossenack. I had lost my family and my entire possessions. The war had taken everything from me. And there I found them...in the roadside ditches, on the edges of the forest, beneath shot trees. I couldn't stand seeing them lying around there, unburied and forgotten. It kept bothering me."
    Erasmus then started to salvage the dead soldiers, to identify and to bury them. At first he buried about 120 bodies on the edges of the forest until the local community gave him a piece of land which should later become the german military cemetery of Vossenack. Also Erasmus got more helping hands by men from the surrounding villages and by Dr. Eschweiler, Vossenacks' parish priest. The work was dangerous, the forest was still mined and burning on many spots due to the ammunition lying around and igniting in the hot summer of 1945. About 100 volunteers died in this area during the salvaging of the dead and the mine clearing - among them Vossenacks' mayor Baptist Linzenich.
    When the cemetery -located on the hard-fought Hill 470- was officially inaugurated by german Federal President Theodor Heuss in 1952, Julius Erasmus had laid 1569 fallen soldiers to rest (due to findings in the course of the decades 2221 soldiers from four nations are resting in Vossenack today, 930 of them still unknown).
    After the work was done Julius Erasmus just vanished without a trace. Just recently it emerged that he died on September 3, 1971 in Nideggen-Abenden in the Eifel Mountains.

    Memorial for Julius Erasmus also at the Military Cemetery at Vossenack.

    The cemetery today, the "most prominent" soldier who is buried here is Field Marshal Walter Model (suicide on April 21, 1945 in the Ruhr pocket), the only german Field Marshal to be buried among common soldiers.

    Feldwebel Gereon Goldmann - "There's no way I'm going to shoot!"

    GG1.jpg GG2.jpg

    Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler attends a maneuver in Eastern Germany in winter of 1940, also the so-called "Regenwurmlager" (earthworm camp) of Franciscan seminarians who were transferred from the Wehrmacht into the Waffen-SS to get them "in line".
    Among others Himmler takes Gereon Goldmann to task and gets an astonishing sullen answer to his question why Goldmann would disobey an order to shoot. "There's no way I'm going to shoot! I want to become a priest and a priest doesn't shoot. Furthermore I want to get re-assigned to the Wehrmacht." Surprisingly Himmler has a certification issued to the young man allowing him free practice of his faith. And: Goldmann is displaced back to the Wehrmacht.
    On January 30, 1944 Goldmann -now a medic with connections to the german resistance- is captured on Sicily by allied troops. He achieves the ordination to the priesthood on June 24, 1944 and is sentenced to death by the French in January 1946 in the prison of Meknes/Morocco. The allegation: Goldmann is a war criminal, eventually he was with the Waffen-SS. On January 27, 1946 he is supposed to step in front of the firing squad. Goldmann reacts immediately and sends a letter in latin to Pope Pius XII. on whose explicit wish Goldmann was hallowed to a priest two and a half years before. Thirty minutes before the execution a telephonic message stops the firing squad. The charge is withdrawn, Goldmann gets released. Indefatigably the Franciscan campaigns for the poor, the bedraggled and the aged. Until 1947 he acts as minister in POW camps in North Africa, from 1948-1953 as pastor in Germany. Father Gereon travels to Japan in 1954 and performs 24 years of pastoral care in Tokyo. Mainly however, he collects money, a lot of money - within 40 years of mission work he collects about 30 million US Dollar of bounties.
    Father Gereon Goldmann, former member of the Waffen-SS, died on July 26, 2003 in the Franciscan convent of Fulda/Germany aged 86.

    FTG, Am I getting that right, that he was pressed into service with the Waffen SS after all?

    Yes, together with several other fellow Christians to refuse to use weapons.

    But why would the French government would want him dead?They didn't condemned most of the soldiers of the "Das Reich" division who took part of the massacre of Ouradour-sur-Glanes,why would they want to shoot him then?

    Less the french government, more the french military jurisdiction. The accusations were: designated national socialist, executioner and/or head of KZ Dachau (!!!, source is Goldmann's "homepage": http://www.lumpensammler.info/sites/frameset.htm)

    Thanks for the link.Some discrepancies though it says he had contact with the german resistance responsible of the July 44 bomb plot.He was arrested (what does strafversetzt means?) in France in September 1943.Why would he be arrested when France was still under German occupation?Also what kind of courier service he has been doing in France and Italy?For the german army or resistance.
    Very interesting case either way.Thanks Flamethrowerguy.

    Goldmann was under arrest -due to an anew disobeying- until the end of 1943. After his release he received a disciplinary transfer (=strafversetzt) to France and later to Sicily.
    While being on furlough he got in touch with Adam von Trott zu Solz (executed August 26, 1944 in Berlin), a german jurist, diplomat and one of the most distinguished members of the german resistance. For him Goldmann acted as a courier of secret resistance messages.

    Thanks for clarifying this for me.It makes more sense.Shame he couldn't prove his actions with the German resistance to the French tribunal.
    Again top info as usual.

    Hauptmann WILM HOSENFELD (*May 2nd 1895 in Mackenzell/Germany; +August 13th 1952 in Stalingrad/Russia).


    Hosenfeld, Wilm_Hauptmann.jpg

    No outstanding military achievements (he was the provost of the german sport school in Warsaw)were done by this soldier but he saved the live of many jewish and polish people by hiding and feeding them. One of them was the polish-jewish pianist Władysław Szpilman known from the Roman Polanski movie "The Pianist". He wasn't given thanks for his engagement though, Hosenfeld died 1952 in a POW camp near Stalingrad from rupture of the thoracic aorta.

    In the movie:
