This division was formed in the Soviet Union behind the lines of Army Group North on January 7, 1944. Its parent unit was the 2nd SS Volunteer Infantry Brigade “Reichsführer-SS” (later designated 2nd Latvian SS Volunteer Brigade), which had been involved in combat on the Eastern Front since 1941. The division—which reached full strength—was involved in heavy fighting in the retreat from Leningrad and through the Baltic States. It suffered heavy casualties before retiring into the Courland Pocket, where it fought six more major battles and where it was when Germany surrendered. Most of the surviving Latvians surrendered on May 8, 1945, and were subsequently executed by the Soviets.
