    Not much information can be found concerning Bruno Gesche after the war, just that he died in 80.

    Some sources say he died on December 27, 1967. I have been searching for an answer to this, as well.

    Bruno was sent to the 16th SS in Italy, they retreated to Hungry where he surrened to Americans. He dissapeared in history because of his drinking problem, which saved his life.

    I still don't know his cause of death or where he died.

    Hello!
    More than 15 years I collect information about Bruno Gesche. Unfortunately, there are very few springs which are honest. Now I have after so many years enough information together. With pleasure I divide this information with all and write about that a book. You must still have a little time. But you can look with pleasure at my homepage. If the book is ready, I will inform of it on my homepage.

    Best regards from germany

    I will check it out, sorry it took me 6 years to reply lol. After Hitler had him removed, he survived the war and died in Germany in 1980, yet there inst much information about him. I guess he laid low.
