32nd SS Volunteer Grenadier Division 30 Januar was formed in January 1945 from what remained of other units and staff and pupils from SS schools and various other troops. The title of the division comes from the date when Adolf Hitler became the chancellor of Germany on 30 January 1933.[citation needed]

The division fought as part of the V SS Mountain Corps, on the Oder front, just north of Furstenburg [1] 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.
