The Waffen-Grenadier-Regiment der SS (rumänisches Nr 1) was attached to II SS Panzerkorps and fought on the Oder until 4 March 1945 when it was transferred to northern Germany. It lost most of its men in the Soviet offensive 16 April and only a few managed to surrender to the Americans.
It was hoped by the Germans that this unit would form the basis of a Waffen-Grenadier Division der SS (rumänische Nr 1) but that never happend.
