...and this is a rare photo of Stubaf. Dietsche (future RKT) laying on a local traditional kilim. This man really looks different in every photograph. (he is also that shortest, lefthanded man in the following rifle-firing photos, 27-28, and he is speaking with Bayer in photo 23)

He reminded me of Deutsch too. But it can't be him, since this is 1943 and he arrived in PE the following year (nearly a year after Phleps & Eberhardt left the division).

Ivan
Mike, as you might have already seen in the SS & Polizei section, he is Hstuf. Otto Meckelburg, commander of III/2.

Cheers,
Ivan

That's a scan I posted on AHF several years ago, from Kumm's "Prinz Eugen im Bild".

In the center is the divisional Ic, Kirchner, interrogating the captured communist partisans, 1942/1943. The Ustuf. on the extreme left I've seen before, but can't put the name to his face right now.

Cheers,
Ivan

Dear members & fans of the fierce guerrilla warfare in Yugoslavia,

The continuation and expansion of the topic can be now found here: Bandenkampf in Jugoslawien 1941-1945.

All captions are being written in both Serbo-Croatian and English.

Rules are the same as ours here: no politics - only history. All posts sourced.

Stay tuned, lots of interesting photos and infos will follow!

Cheers,
Ivan

My grandmother goes on and on about how the war devistated her and how she lost every thing but any information I would get from her would be inacurate. No one really knows the truth as to what happened to him. All I know is that his name was Hans. There is one photo of him writing in a book with some thing writen on the back I dont understand. Prehaps some one will understand it. I have scaned and added it next to the photo.
Cheers, John
My grandfather, his 4 brothers and my great grandfather and his 3 brothers all were also from Zrenjanin and were all SS. They all had "KAISER" surname. I have many photos also with no names - just dates. I know my grandfather was in Afrika Korps Division. Another killed in Russia. I never met my grandfather either and family never spoke of war. I would be interested to look at your photos to see if my family members are in your photos and I will go through mine again to see if your grandfather is in any of mine. I'm in Australia also, my grandfather died before i was born and was the only one from the family to come here, the rest ended up living in Kassel, Germany. Feel free to email me akaiser@gordontafe.edu.au :-) Mandy

Referring the last photo with the USHMM caption " SS Soldiers from the SS-Divion "Prinz Eugen" in Croatia hide with their guns [...]"
More likely an anti-tank gun crew with a flag for the airplane spotter to avoid being caught in friendly fire.
