    Arrow 1st Panzer Division Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler

    My great uncle.

    (Sur)Name: Dillberger
    First name: Oscar
    Rank: Private First Class, 1st Panzer Division Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler
    Date of Birth: 01/02/1921
    Birthplace: Wieting
    Death: 21/07/1943
    Place of Death: Novo-Oskotschnoje, Russia

    I've been trying to find more info on this man but no lucky results. Only a death record and what he served in. Can someone who is a member of a genealogy site help me find this man, maybe a picture or if he had siblings who also fought? As much info as possible. Thank you all!

    There was no rank "Private First Class" in the SS, do you know his real rank?

    I don't know his real rank I guess, it might just be translation issues but he was born in Wieting, Oldenburg, which is part of the Rheinland, yes? My German-side of the family came from parts of the Rheinlands, escpesialy Cologne. Now I have another relative who fought in WWI and his 'grade' was "Landsturmmann" or "Sturmman" though I don't know if that is a rank.

    It should be SS-Oberschütze then, Oberschütze was the designation for Wehrmacht.
    I can't help you directly, but maybe this helps a little.

    Yes, it was infact SS Oberschuetze. I just didn't know at the time that SS was part of the rank. Thanks!
