    Arm Jewish captives?

    How many guards do you think the Germans would need to watch them on the front lies?? Don't you think the Jewish troops might get disoriented and shoot at the Germans a lot of times???

    (It was hard enough to get them to work under duress in factories without them doing internal espionage. )

    IOW, no way!

    So your premise is that Himmler bumped his head on the polished marble floors of the Berchtesgarten and when he awoke from his coma he decided to disregard all of the dogma and rhetoric, of the "Master Race" and the "Thousand Year Reich", and send the subject of their Nationaly sponsored hatred and cruelty to the front lines?

    Despite the fact that the leaders of "The International Jewish Community", purportedly, had declared war on Germany in 1933 ( The Jewish Declaration of War on Nazi Germany: The Economic Boycott of 1933. M. Raphael Johnson, Ph.D. )

    And the Germans had enacted the "Nuremberg Laws" which, among other things, barred Jews from serving in the military, holding government jobs and serving in public office ( Anti-Jewish Legislation in Prewar Germany )

    Thats not to say there weren't persons of Jewish ancestory serving in the German Military ( Hitler's Jewish Soldiers - Perhaps 150,000 Jews Fought Valiantly ) ( http://germanamericanpioneers.org/documents/MicrosoftWord-15000inGermanArmy.pdf )

    As entertaining as this topic might become it would serve no benefit to the intellectual well being of this web forum.

    Apalling lack of capitals in the OP.

    I tend to agree with Jughead, so I'll head off on a tangent.

    Was Chief of Staff (Chef des Stabes): Kapitän zur See Harald Netzbandt who was died on the Bismarck when it sank the highest ranking Jew in the Third Reich?
