Does anyone know the place of this Partisanenkrieg, based on the building in the background?

Photos (that one, and the one with Schmidhuber is from the same session) have been discussed on pages 37 and 38.

Please let's not copy/paste here the entire NARA Prinz Eugen archive, OK? There are a couple of hundreds of photos of this division on their website. I already marked most of them (see comments). I didn't have the time to comment on all though.

Cheers,
Ivan

The SS-Oberscharführer on multiple images is visible at Phelps. Is it his aide/adjutant? Could this SS-Untersturmführer Rolf Wagner, who was killed along with Phleps in 1944? Can anyone confirm this.

Hi
These tanks went to the Division "Prinz Eugen" in 1942 The picture was taken probably in the summer - autumn 1942

(officer at 0:22 - 0:24 might be Stubaf. Künstler, divisional communications commander; I haven't seen a photo of him, so can't claim it)
The same Stubaf. from the footage appears also in a photo with Staf. Ernst Ludwig. And according to Phil Nix's (†) note, he was possibly a member of staff of Ers. u. Ausb. Prinz Eugen. Any IDs now perhaps...?

Hi, Ivan!
I watched "Die Deutsche Wochensachau" from which this passage of the SS-Division "Prinz Eugen". After these shots from Stubaf. shows the heavy artillery divisions. This is probably Stubaf. Felix Illner. Commander IV / SS-Geb.Art.Rgt. 7

Hi all,

just found this and thought it would be an interesting share: Mirko Tepavac, political commissar of the 3rd Vojvodina Brigade and 36th Vojvodina Division of the Yugoslav People's Liberation Army (and Yugoslav foreign minister from 1969-1972) wrote the following on the "Prinz Eugen":
It was the only German unit which fought both during day and night (like us), carried weapons and supplies on its back or on horses (like us) and spoke Serbian-almost like us! Happily, they were late in realizing how advantageous all this could be [I presume this refers to the "Freie Jagd" concept devised by Phleps and used to a certain extent only during 1944- G.T.].

When we face each other without knowing whether friend or foe is on the opposite hill and when we are ready to either embrace or kill each other, we yell: who goes there? Instead of an answer we hear in Serbian: and who goes there? After several such exchanges, we decide to identify ourselves: here are the men of Vojvodina!, only to hear "Here are also men of Vojvodina!" in response.

Only when weapons start to roar it becomes apparent that we are two entirely different types of Vojvodina men [...] Only one of these two armies would return to Vojvodina and it wouldn't be them! Until then, both armies lost many of their members here, but they lost the war and Vojvodina as well.

Only and nothing but bad memories remained!
Mirko Tepavac, Moj Drugi svjetski rat i mir: o ratu posle rata-autobiografski zapisi (Zagreb: Razlog, 2012, pp. 147-8).

Cheers,

G.
