Hi guys,

who's this SS-Brigadeführer next to Rosenberg?
It looks little bit like Helmut Poppendick, but his latest rank was SS-Oberführer, as far as I know...
Article says, that picture was taken in Kiev.

I believe this image has been discussed several times on the forum.

I need your help and expertise concerning this SS-Oberführer. The photo was taken during the summer of 1942 (or maybe 1943), in the Netherlands.
Any idea ?
Thanks a lot,

Charles

My first idea is Viktor Knapp but I am in need of a confirmation.

Good evening,

In this well-known picture, taken during a ceremony in honor of Fritz Witt after his death, the officer holding Witt's daughter in his lap is identified as Fritz Klingenberg, can someone confirm that?

Regards

Yup! :) He doesn't really look like himself there (maybe he was gritting his teeth or something), but it is him.

Yes that's Klingenberg, I think he wore private purchase tunics and his collars (and also bottom edges) always look marginally different to standard issue tunics.
