The 32nd SS Volunteer Grenadier Division "30 Januar" (German: 32. SS-Freiwilligen Grenadier-Division "30. Januar")[1] was formed in January 1945 from what remained of other units and staff and pupils from SS schools and various other troops.[citation needed] The division fought as part of the V SS Mountain Corps, on the Oder front, just north of Furstenburg [2] and in the Battle of Berlin. The division was destroyed in the Halbe pocket, but part of the unit surrendered to the Americans at Tangermünde.
