Svenska namn i den finska rapporten om de finska SS-soldaternas deltagande i krigsförbrytelser

För alla som ännu inte hunnit läsa den färska och föredömliga finska regeringsrapporten om de finska SS-soldaternas krigsförbrytelser (se https://www.dn.se/nyheter/varlden/rapport-finska-ss-volontarer-dodade-sannolikt-judar) som publicerades igår och föredömligt på engelska och dessutom föredömligt sammanfattad på både finska och (finlands)svenska så kan det vara av (svenskt) intresse att nämna att flera rikssvenska SS-soldater, d v s inte enbart finlandssvenska (eller estlandssvenska eller ukrainasvenska) sådana, också omnämns i rapporten bredvid flera norska och danska SS-soldater vilka också pekas ut som krigsförbrytare och mördare av judar, romer, sovjetiska krigsfångar och slaviska civila såsom bl a Elis Höglund, Kurt Lundin, Ragnar Linnér och Curt Birger Norberg (det digra personregistret innehåller då ett flertal svenskklingande namn men de allra flesta av dem är då högerextrema finlandssvenskar och finlandssvenska SS-soldater) och uppgifterna bygger bl a på Bosse Schöns bok ”Där järnkorsen växer” som jag gjorde research för:
 
Elis Höglund
Unterscharführer i 5. SS-Panzer-Division Wiking och i 11. SS Freiwilligen-Panzergrenadier-Division Nordland 1941-44
Höglund var efter kriget medlem i SAC-Syndikalisterna och arbetade som vakt på Solliden på Öland.
”The SS-volunteer Elis Höglund told a Swedish radio programme in 1963 that he had witnessed the killing of Jews in Rostov-on- Don, where a considerable number of Jews were summarily shot. According to journalist Bosse Schön, this event occurred on 24.–28.7.1942 as the Sonderkommando 10a executed Jews in the Rostov area.”
 
Kurt Lundin: Sturmmann i 5. SS-Panzer-Division Wiking 1941-43
Lundin tjänstgjorde även vid SS-Hauptamt i Berlin som tolk åt SS-Obergruppenführer Felix Steiner och arbetade för Sicherheitsdienst (SD).
”The SS-volunteer Kurt Lundin told the Swedish police authorities he was a member of the Reserve Battalion of SS-Regiment Westland in 1941– 43. His unit was, as it appears, present in Husiatyn… on 6.–7.7.1941, when his Company was ordered to cleanse the town of Soviet partisans. However, another Company had already started gathering people who were to be shot. The bulk of these were Jews. All of them [the Jewish captives] were ordered to carry away the bodies of victims shot by Soviet forces before their withdrawal from the town… On one occasion, Lundin had witnessed how an SS-officer had grabbed a baby from its mother and – keeping the infant in his hands – had slit the baby open and thrown it back to the mother. A common way of killing babies was to grab the children by the legs and smash their head against a wall. On one occasion, women sneaked into the barracks. They were, however, driven out and all of them were shot with machine guns. On several occasions, Lundin witnessed the killing of Jews – men, women and children – involving about 800 victims. A member of a special SS-Company, named the Jew Company, had told him that he was commissioned to hunt down Jews and kill them.”
 
Ragnar Linnér: Schütze i 5. SS-Panzer-Division Wiking 1941
Linnér var efter kriget medlem i Stay Behind-nätverket och han ansvarade även för de inhemska adoptionerna i Stockholms stad på 1950- och 60-talen och grundade 1958 Akademikerförbundet SSR.
”Linnér’s units were present on the frontlines near Dnipropetrovsk as hundreds of surrendered Soviet soldiers were shot on the spot. For the most part, the treatment of POWs was ruthless and they were driven forward with kicks and blows from the rifle butts. Schön presumes that as guards they would have witnessed how Polizeibataillon 314 of the Ordnungspolizei (OrPo) shot 7,000–8,000 Jews in Dnipropetrovsk between 10. and 14.10.1941. Linnér may also have known of some repressive acts by Einsatzkommando 6. At around this time, the unit shot Jews in Zaporizhia… and in Borodaievka.”
 
Curt Birger Norberg
Obersturmführer i 1. SS-Panzer-Division Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler 1942-43
Norberg tjänstgjorde även vid SS-Hauptamt i Berlin och deltog bl a i uppsättandet av en norsk skidlöparbataljon på 800 man.
”SS-Obersturmführer Curt Birger Norberg of the Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler deserted from his unit after serving in the vicinity of Kharkiv, and in March 1943 he was interrogated by the Swedish security services. He then reported: “In Russia, all Jews are shot behind the front”.”
