SS- Zögling Wladimir Korytowskyj
Korytowskyj was born on the 6th of September 1928 in Sahiericzko, Ukraine. (Galizien)
He was found fit for service (With : Flieger-Ersatz-Btl.III Einstellungs-Kommando I Eger) in September 1944, at only 16 years old.
SS-Zögling refers to a juvenile SS pupil who was not yet eligible to join the formal SS. In Eastern Europe and the Baltic states (in this case Hungary), these members were tasked to defend and guard airfields, buildings, warehouses, workshops, factories, etc. against enemy aircraft attacks.
He would join Flakabteilung 755, it seems they served for a short time in Flensburg, then at the military airport Jagel. According to a survivor of the unit, they were armed with 3.7cm Flak and were later deployed on the Oder Front. Many of the young men reported missing seem to be in the area just east of Berlin in Fürstenwalde in April 1945, just as the Red Army advanced on Berlin.
Although the author of the article below ended up a little further south in the Halbe Pocket.
It is unknown what the fate of this young boy was, he is not reported as missing or as killed in action.
An interesting and rare book for a young SS recruit, interestingly others from this unit are seen on the market. There is not many, but they seem to be from a hoard find.
