I think Max is right- man in raincoat is Franz Kutschera.

Fifth pic down,Officer on left looks like Erich Wasicky,Pharmacist at the Camp
from 1941-44,he was a tall man as can be seen with his boss Ziereis-Jobst-Krebsbach
on a pic posted some time before on this forum.
No one has mentioned about the fact that Bittrich appears to be on a visit,seen on the Wikipedia site,
ref Mauthausen.

Surely the officer behind Hausser on the staircase is Kiermeier ?

What a crew.....John Toland misidentified the guy in the raincoat as possibly being Hitler ("Hitler: The Pictorial Documentary of his Life")...Toland used a photo that was taken of the man at the top (looking down) the quarry steps.
You can't see the Death's Head on the man's cap and the picture does look slightly like it could be Hitler (as Hitler looked with cape at the 1938 Nuremberg Rally). Toland was so wrong! It's amazing how many photos have been misidentified over the years.

is very surprising how many people innocent in this forum see those photos and think the "elite" of WSS are not part of the Nazi Germany, are not relatives to the superior race theory, are not relatives to the Conquist war against Europa, are not relatives to the racism Hitler theories, Holocaust, etc, etc, etc.

If one of this soldier doesn´t know about the Holocaust as a fact, even he was part of a racist, antisemit and propulsor of hate Regime.

Please! that "elite" of soldiers were part of NAZI GERMANY... they were NAZIS.

Best,

HA

PD: Fritz Klingenberg was soldier in a NAZI Regime, was member of a NAZI organization, fought against other countries to conquist the world then... surprise! Fritz Klingenberg was a NAZI.
