Post by PF » 20 Jan 2009 13:33

IS this Photograph of Warsaw Gestapo Chief Ludwig Hahn at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Stroo ... _26549.jpg in right foreground? Who are other German Officers besides Stroop?

Man on the right holding the machine gun is Karl Kaleske, Stroop's adjutant.

Do we know who the officer in the foreground is?

it says at USHMM ( http://inquery.ushmm.org/uia-cgi/uia_do ... uia_KDAyIq ) that it is Ludwig Hahn!!

"An SS officer questions two Jewish resistance fighters during the suppression of the Warsaw ghetto uprising as SS Major General Juergen Stroop (rear, center) and his security detail look on. The original German caption reads: "Jewish traitors."

Among those pictured is the KdS (Kommandeur des Sicherheitsdienstes and Sicherheitspolizei) in Warsaw, SS-Standartenfuehrer Dr. Ludwig Hahn (in leather coat)."

It's not Hahn.
This officer appears also on the other photo with Stroop (F.MacLean "The Ghetto Men" p.194)
MacLean states that this is SS-Ostuf Franz Konrad (hanged after war in Warsaw).

:roll: Another website load of nonsense. They probably got their bad information from Wikipedia or vice versa.
Take my word for it, that is not von Herff in the photo.
