Political Prisoners

never heard of increasing nrs of political prisoners at dirlewanger. or read. I think it's some crappy stunt. I leave it for now as to a certain extend some desperate people may have fell under some of the descriptions, but i think it is weird. It was rather a criminal division and that was as far as i understand it, recognised in the recruitment. These people fell under worse categorys then political prisoners, also repeatedly convicted members of other army units contributed.77.248.56.242 02:47, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

Its membership was originally comprised of poachers. Later it included common criminals. Towards the end of its existance, the "Dirlewanger" unit came to include all outcasts of the Nazi regeim: homosexuals, religious and political prisoners and so on. It can truely be said that this was made up of all persons outlawed by the Nazi regeim. Piercetp (talk) 07:08, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
I would add that many members of this unit, particularly Communists and other leftists deserted and joined forces with Partisans. A number of Veterans even served the in the military and police branches of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). Piercetp (talk) 07:18, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Someone fix the (annoying) copyrights stuff on its page. I had no idea so I used this "sanctions" excuse, even if it was technically false. --Captain Obvious and his crime-fighting dog (talk) 18:54, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Haha, yeah. That's a pretty strange rationale. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tchernobog (talkcontribs) 21:00, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
