Dear fellow members,
just come to be inform that Dieter pass away this morning
"mein Vater ist heute Morgen nach längerer, schwerer Krankheit verstorben.
Er war in den letzten Monaten nicht mehr in der Lage, seine Emails zu beantworten.
Mit herzlichem dank und freundlichen Grüßen"
I'm sad today. he was a major member of our forum as well in the Phil Nix SS and Police section that in the AHF section . His work, his knowledge he kindly put at disposal of members through his so precise so complete posts.
For 20 years we have developed through AHF a historical and friendly relationship which I will miss.

Eventhough I did not know Dieter personally I always appreciated his knowledge and his kindness. Rest in peace Dieter.

So sorry to hear this news. Dieter was one of the best and I miss corresponding with him. Although we never met I always felt we were friends. We are losing too many of the old researchers. A loss for all of us.

I have no words to express the sorrow of this big loss. One of the most experienced and highly professional participants of AHF left.
His knowledge and books were excellent.
Rest in peace Dieter - we will miss you.

A loss indeed. He was active here I think since the beginning until he left last year? Anybody know how old he was? Bye Dieter.

Very sad to hear - for those of us who had the privilege to correspond with Oberstab he was very helpful and a fountain of knowledge! Rest in peace, Dr. Zinke.
My thought go to his family and friends

All my thoughts have been eloquently expressed by other members here. I can only add that he was a gracious man, always helpful and appreciative of any help given in quest for perfection in his work. It was an honor to known him.

Oberstabsarzt Dr. Zinke was a true friend to me and to our community.
The more I think of it, the more it hits me how much we've lost with his passing. But his contributions were vast and will continue to inform and enlighten for years to come.
My deepest condolences to all who knew and loved him.
To all who remain- we old-timers in particular- I want to say, in a general sense, how much I've appreciated you all through the years. I would not have achieved much in this field without your help and encouragement.

It truly saddens me... In the past years I had the privilege to correspond from time to time with Dr. Dieter ZINKE. He was always helpful and courteous. His passion, his work in the field of historical research and contribution to this Forum were just great. He will remain in my memory...
