Pückler-Burghauss was chief of the Waffen-SS units in the Protectorate
of Bohemia and Moravia and also temporarily commanded the Latvian
Division of the Waffen-SS.
So big and brave when it comes to killing women and children!
Not so brave when it comes to facing angry armed Jewish men! LOL
Contravening the terms of Germany's capitulation taking effect 8 May,
Pückler-Burghauss moved west in an attempt to surrender to the
Americans. Their refusal resulted in the Battle of Slivice, in which
the Germans were defeated. After the battle, Czech partisans started
mopping up operations in the Brdy forests to capture and execute the
Waffen-SS troops that had escaped into the forests.
How fun that must have been! Hunting frightened SS assholes and
EXECUTING them and leaving them to rot!
He signed a capitulation on 12 May, the last document of surrender of
World War II in Europe. Shortly afterwards, he shot himself along with
some of his staff.
