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 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 or far right-wing groups, nor are we affiliated with any such organizations. For the hobby of reenacting to function, both sides of the conflict must be represented. As such, we have taken on the role of an elite German formation of World War II.


World War II was the largest, most deadly conflict in human history. The effects of that conflict are still felt today, over 60 years after the last shots were fired. The cost of victory was staggering, as some 50 million people worldwide lost their lives. By engaging in living history and reenactments, we hope to keep the history of this dark period alive, and to help educate the public about what America's enemies looked like and why victory over them was such a monumental achievement. Sadly, many in America today have little to no connection with the past. Our group, and dozens like it, hope to help folks understand World War II, its impact, and its relevance to modern day events.

Or make a donation:

The 9th Reenactment Society accepts donations to help keep our living history alive. Every dollar counts so please give if you are so inclined. All donations go directly to maintaining our vehicles so we can get them out to public shows and events. They are VERY expensive to own, operate, transport and maintain. We very much appreciate your support.

Vielen Dank from The 9th Reenactment Society.
