No...

An aristocrat, an Allgemeine SS & Waffen-SS (Standarte/battalion) commander. Pictured above as a POW (sub)camp commandant.

His surname is particularly famous in the US (not because of him though!), they even have a holiday named after it.

Cheers,
Ivan

Note: in his better known photos, he looks a lot less chubby and the dimple in his chin is hardly visible / invisible.

A fair guess, dear Georges, but it's not him either...

Remember, his surname is well known in the US (because of an XVIII century military commander). They have a holiday called "Von _______ Day".

He's not really known by this little detail, but in his youth, he was a page (servant) to Princess Friederike Wilhelmine, Kaiser Wilhelm's youngest daughter.
