Kurt SeibPanzer Grenadier - SalernoGerman 26th Panzer Division
Here Kurt is pictured as a machine gunner in Russia. I met Kurt at the Panzer reunion while interviewing Germans about Salerno. He is quite a man and very interesting! He gave me an interview but did not want to speak much about Salerno as he was in action against my father. I saw his paper work in his Soldbuch. Three of the actions that qualified him for the close combat badge he did at Salerno. He read to me out of his diary: on May 1, 1945 they received word that Hitler had been killed in street fighting against the Russians. He and some German nurses drank a toast that Hitler was dead and the war would soon be over.
