Action:
On the morning of the 01.01.1943, in the narrow corridor to Demyansk, the III./Jäger-Regiment 75 stood ready for defense in the sector of the 225. Infanterie-Division in the area around Ssofronkowo. Attached to this battalion was the Sturmgeschütz of Unteroffizier Naumann, positioned 800 meters east of the village. Just after 09:30 the Soviets launched an armoured attack in this sector. Naumann shot up 6 enemy tanks and thus prevented a breakthrough in the sector of the battalion.
