Charles Sydnor Jr. explains in his book Soldiers of Destruction: The SS Death's Head Division, 1933-1945 that the Totenkopf Division was an exception to the other Waffen-SS units. The Totenkopf Division had during the war still associations with the concentration and extermination camp system. The Shutzstaffel Totenkopf (SSTK) Division had its beginnings with the birth of the Third Reich. The division was an outgrowth of the concentration camp guard units, and many of the cruel and inhuman characteristics of these soldiers carried over into the SSTK.
