On website "Swedish Volunteers in the GErman Wehrmacht in WW" at URL http://www.fieldgrau.com/sweden.html IDs this as a vechile of Swedish Kompanies In Nordland Division at Friedrichstrasse 107 and the dead man at right as a Ragnar Johanssom from Stockholm. (FOR Reference only)
The Question is which Divison-Wiking or Nordland?
Both Divisions had the similiar Division insignia-however it seems that the Nordland Division
is correct-the Swastika in photo has a circle around it-which the Nordland also had.

Willi Rogmann walked near it and observed an small entry hole on right side of vehicle. He thought it was made by captured Panzerfaust fired by Russian soldier. He also saw how several occupants had managed to bail out but were killed by machine gun fire.
According to SS-Hstuf Hans Gösta Pehrson who was in that Pz. Ragnar was killed by a handgrenade in the house
next to the pz. H-G Pehreson managed to survive.
