Hans-Georg “Frettchen” Schulze, SS number: 270-844, born on September 11, 1917 in Berlin-Spandau, was the youngest son of a Prussian army officer, he grew up on Lindenufer* with his older brother Richard.
Like his brother, Frettchen was a long time member of the Hitlerjugend (earning the HJ honour badge in gold), he then attended classes at the SS-Junkerschule Bad Tölz (class of 1937/1938) and became a member of the elite division Leibstandarte. In September 1939 on recommendation from Sepp Dietrich he was integrated in the Führerbegleitkommando (FBK) and became one of Hitler’s adjutants. Schulze quickly became one the Führer favorite adjutants and was popular with everyone inside Hitler’s inner circle.
In spring 1941, Hans-Georg Schulze returned to the Leibstandarte to gain combat experience and participated in Operation Marita, he belonged to the unit led by Gerd Pleiss who successfully took the Klidi Pass. Later in June 1941, in the early stage of Operation Barbarossa, Schulze was leading a combat-strength reconnaissance patrol, and on July 27, while trying to pierce enemy lines, near Panskyi Mist**, he was fatally injured by a grenade and died instantly, less than 100 meters away from his brother Richard. Although wounded himself, Richard helped to bury his younger brother. According to Rudolf Lehmann (The Leibstandarte Vol.2), Hans-Georg Schulze died like a hero and was given the Wound Badge in Gold as a posthumous promotion.
Hitler was saddened by the death of Hans-Georg Schulze, and when Richard was evacuated to the rear to treat his wounds he was advised to phone Hitler’s adjutant Hans Pfeiffer at the Führerhauptquartier. Pfeiffer informed him that the Führer wanted to see him and a meeting was arranged at the nearby Führerhauptquartier. There Hitler presented his condolences and offered Richard Schulze his brother’s former position as an adjutant and promised to take him away from combat in order to save his family name.
Later Hans-Georg “Frettchen” Schulze was reburied and found a final resting place in the cemetery of Biala-Zarkow (Ukraine), possibly next to St. John Baptist Church, where a German military cemetery was organized. As the cemetery was later destroyed by the Red Army, the location of Frettchen’s grave remains actually unknown
