A scarce group of 38 large format photographs relating to the SS and a visit by Himmler to the 14th Grenadier Division
A scarce group of 38 large format photographs relating to the SS and a visit by Himmler to the 14th Waffen-Grenadier Division der SS (Ukrainische nr 1), images are approximately 23x18cm (9x7 inches) each. 35 refer to Himmler’s visit to the Division, which at that time was commanded by SS Brigadefuhrer Fritz Freitag. Freitag won his Knights Cross commanding the Division at the front. The photographs show Himmler, accompanied by Otto Wachter – Governor of Galicia, visiting the Division during training. Himmler, Freitag and Wachter are visible in many of the images. The other 3 photographs show Sturmbannfuhrer Heinz Harmel (later Knights Cross winner) addressing a group of SS soldiers in drill uniform. Another (with names on the back) shows the staff of Der Fuhrer with Otto Kumm (Knights Cross winner with Swords) in the centre, and the third shows a high ranking army general in front of a monument with SS man in the back ground. All photographs have the SS Panzer Grenadier ''Der Fuhrer'' control stamp and date on the back. An extremely fine set of images giving a glimpse into regimental life of a Waffen-SS unit.
