Lee Luke posted a topic in Military ID's of the Third ReichI got this one a while back and decided to share a bit. Fischlein was a member of Polizei Schutzen Rgt 34 and saw his first action in the Bialystok area in May 1943 and was later directly involved in the clearing of the ghetto there in August 1943. The Jewish prisoners fought back for five days but were crushed. Almost everyone in the ghetto was transported to Treblinka with some going to Majdenak. I just finished two first hand accounts written by two survivors of Treblinka. They mentioned the trains from the Bialystok Ghetto and the wretched condition of the people, some of them wounded. Fischlein was later involved in the Warsaw Uprising, being attached to Kampfgruppe von dem Bach. His fate is unknown.
