Operation Günther (i)

This was a German operation in Belorussia by a combined force of Sicherheitsdienst personnel, police and SS troops of the Kampfgruppe ‘von Gottberg’, under the command of SS-Brigadeführer und Generalmajor der Polizei Curt von Gottberg, against so-called partisans (largely Jews and other ‘undesirables’) in the German-occupied western USSR (29 June/7 July 1943).

The operation targeted the area of Logoisk and Borisov to the north-east of Minsk.
