SS-Totenkopfverbände (SS-TV) is one of the divisions of the Schutzstaffel (SS) created in 1933. Managed Nazi concentration and extermination camps in Germany and occupied Europe.
Oberbayern - 1st standard of the SS division "Totenkopf" formed in 1937 in Dachau. The tasks included "security operations" behind enemy lines, which in reality amounted to terrorizing and murdering the civilian population in Poland.
Thüringen - 3rd standard formed in 1937 in Buchenwald. During the invasion of Poland. 3rd standard conducted "security operations" in the rear, which were aimed at murdering civilians and terrorist actions on the territory of Poland.
The "Skull" Cuff title was introduced in September 1938 to replace the "Oberbayern" cuff title of the 1st SS-Totenkopf Standarte. While the "Totenkopf" (letters) cuff title wasn't adopted until September 1942, the confusion exists as many "skull" cuff titles were worn in the Totenkopf Division, either by prior serving 1 SS-TV members or as an unofficial Divisional title.
