It's not the nazi issue. It's just that some people are not that deep into history, especially WW2 stuff and details like that would be of no interest. It's natural.
BUT, since you've asked......
SS-Sturmbannführer Max Hansen
Is the son of a peasant. Born 31th Juli 1908 in Niebüll/Schleswig he became a locksmith. In 1930 he became a member of the NSDAP and also of the SA and an SS-Mann one year later. Already in 1941 Hansen earned the German Cross in Gold while fighting against the soviets. Of his own accord SS-Sturmbannführer Hansen and his battalion advanced in tough street-for-street and house-to-house fighting to the Roten Platz und opend up the path into the inner city, so that the northern Part of Charkow could be seized. In 1944 he was commander of Kampfgruppe Hansen, who took part in the Ardennes Offensive.
I believe you are already familiar with this famous soldier pic: [link]
. It has surfed the world almost as much as the photo of the flag raising at Iwo Jima. This soldier belonged to the 2.Kompanie, 1.Bataillon, SS-PanzerGrenadier Regiment from Kampfgruppe Hansen
, led by the man whose portrait I've just drawn. That photo was from a newsreel, Ardennes Offensive, Belgium 1944.
Photos and more info about Max Hansen, as well as photos of his men (from the same newsreel):
Hope this gives you a clue. If not, well... I'll see what more I can do.
Thanks for the comment!
