That’s a nice ring, what a find. If Kaack died in the Crimea, does anyone know how his ring ended up in the Czech Republic?

S VB,,,,, That is a great question...

He might have been at one time in CZ Rep. near wars end or time of surrender and ditched it... The Soviets were brutal and moved , tortured, questioned/interrogated etc. men from place to place, and then he finally died when moved to Crimea in 1947....

Maybe some more detective work could be done. Find out where his units service time was being done etc. IF, if he was nowhere around CZ then you got a mystery!

Good evening Gaspare.

Personally, I think the ring was thrown away before it was captured. As many other SS officers have done. Not all soldiers and officers ended up in American captivity. Many were unlucky and ended up in Russian captivity. Finding out where he was at the end of the war will probably be more difficult. In May, many SS units were located in the Protectorate and retreated under the command of SS Gruppenführer Carl Friedrich von Pückler-Burghauss to the US zone.

Here is a document in which the status of SS units in the protectorate months before the end of the war. The document comes from the archive.

Very nice original ring! If I remember correctly there was some confusion regarding the owner of the ring as all that is legible in the engraving is "aack"
