The 9th Reenactment Society is a group of non-political enthusiasts of history. We portray combat soldiers of the 9th Waffen-SS Panzer Division "Hohenstaufen" at public educational displays and at private reenactments. We are not a neo-nazi organization, nor do we subscribe to the ideas, ideals, goals, or aspirations of any extremist groups, nor are we affiliated with any such organizations. For the hobby of reenacting to function, and to represent a true history, both sides of the conflict must be represented. As such, we have taken on the difficult role of an elite German formation of World War II.
