The Generalkommando Rothkirch was formed in July 1944 by renaming the former HQ of Wehrmachtbefehlshaber Weißruthenien while retreating from White Russia/Belarus. The short time existence of Gen.Kdo. Rothkirch ended when it was restructured for the reformation of Gen.Kdo. LIII. AK on 11 November 1944 near Danzig.
