9th SS Aufklarungs Abteilung
9th SS-Panzer-Division Hohenstaufen was mainly formed from conscripts,
many of them from the RAD.
It first saw action at Tanopol Apr 1944 where it took part in rescuing
German troops from the Kamenets-Podolsk pocket. It was sent to Normandy
to fight the allied landings. It retreated into Belgium before being sent
to rest near Arnhem where they soon had to fight the allied paratroopers
who landed there. It was then transferred to Germany and later
fought in the Ardennes and Hungary before ending the war in Austria.

Welcome to the home of the
9th SS Aufklarungs Abteilung Reenactment group.
We are the Reconnaissance Battalion of the 9th SS Panzer Division Hohenstaufen.
We are a new unit from Indiana that has an interest in the German Soldier. While we do
not seek to condone or wish to glorify extremist regimes of the period such as the Third
Reich, we are interested in the soldiers of the SS as soldiers. We wish to understand
them better, how they lived, how they fought, and the uniforms and equipment they used.
We strive, through re-enactment, to understand them a little more.
We are seeking new members, and are welcome those who share an interest in reliving history with us.
