Hallo zusammen,

For my first message I wanted, from the very start, to present you my sincerest apologies, because I'll just speak in English because, unfortunately, I don't have good command of the language of Goethe. However, I hope that I can be understood by the greatest number.

My name is Stéphane, I'm 44, and work in IT. I'm member of the departmental section of Gironde (Bordeaux) of an association of Spanish veterans in France (AAGEF-FFI: Amicale des Anciens Guérilleros Espagnols en France et FFI), where I serve as "archivist".

We're currently working on a book on the participation of the Spanish Resistance in the Liberation of Bordeaux (August 44) and the Gironde (until April 1945). And it's in this context that I registered on this forum hoping that you'll be able to help us with our project.

Late August 1944, Ernst Kühnemann Korvettenkapitän, Haffenkommandant von Bordeaux, is he who must execute the order of destruction of the port and quays of Bordeaux which are mined. Later, in 1949 and 1950, He asserted under oath that he'd received this order but that he was too far away in his Retreat to execute it. In Bordeaux, he'd also signed a Convention with the Resitance of Bordeaux. He would have apparently respected it.

Today, I'm looking for the unit's Wardiary (KTB: Kriegstagbuch), which, I hope, will be more precise about the mining devices used and the different steps of the retreat. But these documents have been preserved? Could you advise me, guide me?

Thank you very much for your help so precious.

Best Regards

Stéphane

Merci beaucoup Urs :)

Peux-tu me dire si je n'ai pas fait de faute d'orthographe dans le titre de mon sujet ?

Salut ;)

There was no war diary of Hafenkommandant Bordeaux photographed by the Allies:

I don't know if there is one available at the german military archive in Freiburg.

It does not seem so. The only file according to "Stefan Martens: Frankreich und Belgien unter deutscher Besatzung, 1940-1944: die Bestände des Bundesarchiv-Militärarchivs Freiburg" is: Fernschreiben betr. Marschstärken v. 21.8.1944 (RM 45-IV/8). There exists a KTB from Kommandant der Seeverteidigung Gascogne 1.8-15.8.1944 (RM 45-IV/313).

Regards

Dirk

Bonjour, Stéphane,

Peux-tu me dire si je n'ai pas fait de faute d'orthographe dans le titre de mon sujet ?
Il y`a une faute minuscule / there`s only one very minor error: Haffenkommandant.

I don`t think that the KTB of "Marine-Regiment Kühnemann", formed for the retreat from France,
Marine-Regimenter
contains the "technical" information you are looking for.

I believe that the KTB shown by Dirk (Bergedorf)
There exists a KTB from Kommandant der Seeverteidigung Gascogne 1.8-15.8.1944 (RM 45-IV/313).
will be the more interesting source.

Salut, Urs

No. It contains only informations about alliied attacks by sea and air.
No informations about harbour installations.
