- I knew there were Hungarian Wehrmact guards, but did not realise there were also Hungarian SS guards there too. Thanks for the info!
- The SS got most of their troops from volunteers in Eastern Europe.
- To be more precise, ~60% of Waffen-SS units by the end of the war were comprised of non-Germans . Furthermore, many of the most infamous camp-guards were Eastern European, including Ivan "the Terrible" Marchenko from Ukraine. It should also be noted however that many Eastern European SS recruits had been prisoners of war, and joined the SS at least partly as an escape from their own internment.
- Thanks for elaborating!
- Generally speaking what makes the SS different from the rest of the German army at the time?
- SS was originally more fanatical and devoted to Hitler, but really the differences are their origins and that they were generally better equipped with high tech equipment and weapons. (STG44, Tiger / Kingtiger tanks, first night vision goggles etc.)
- Rough times.
- I can't tell if I think that forcing the SS to contract typhus is terrible or deserved... probably both.
- This is an incredible photo, thanks for adding context
