Franciszek Wojtowicz, more commonly known as Franz, was born October 23rd, 1923 in Galicia, Poland.  His father, Tomasz was veteran of WWI, having served in the Zelazna Brigade for Austria-Hungary.   Following WWI, Tomasz joined the Polish Army and was executed by NKVD at the Katyn massacre.  Franz sought to avenge his father and joined the Polnisches Schutzmannschaftsbataillon 202 in 1942.  Although he was disappointed when he found his work was primarily anti-partisan, he deserted after killing his brother Roman.  Franz attempted to enlist in the 14th SS Galizien in 1943, but his request was denied and instead joined the 3rd Panzergrenadiers.
