Andreas was born on December 31st 1925 in Oberwildenau. He was a previous member of the Hitler youth and ended up in the 12th SS Panzer Hitlerjugend division. He was in Buron, which lies just northwest of Caen, and not far from Sword and Juno Beach, when he was killed in action on June 7th 1944. The village was the scene of fighting that day between the Canadian 27th Armoured Regiment aided by the North Nova Scoatia Highlanders, and elements of the SS-Panzer-Regiment 12, part of the Hitlerjugend division. He is buried in a cemetery in Bazenville. From my collection.
