SS soldier killed in Battle of the Bulge

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Attached is a death card to a very young SS soldat  (mortar operator ??) , he was only 17 years old- called Siegfried Peschl  who was killed on 29 December 1944.

If anyone can help with division, regiment and possibly the engagement/battle he was killed in.

Thanks

Sven (Alfonz)

Looks like he died most likely in the Hospital, since there is one near the Cemetery. Not to many casualties lay there. May have been severely wounded somewhere near Eifel / Luxembourg ? 

"Auf dem Städtischen Friedhof "Wehrbüsch" befinden sich zwei Kriegsgräberanlagen. Auf dem einen Feld sind 161 Soldaten des II. Weltkrieges und auf dem anderen 87 Zivilkriegstote (Bombenopfer) bestattet.  Die einzelnen Gräber sind mit beschrifteten Schiefertafeln gekennzeichnet. Die Friedhofsanlagen wurden in den Jahren 1955 bis 1957 ausgebaut."
