At this time the division was making a fighting withdrawal through Austria after participating in the Russian Vienna Offensive. On April 25, 1945, the division had a strength of only 8,743 men and no more heavy weapons. As the Americans advanced from the West, parts of the division took up positions on the line in Donau, Dimbach, Weißenbach, St. Oswald, and Freistadt. On May 7, 1945, the division received the order to withdraw to the West in hopes of being taken prisoner by the Western Allies.
