Hello to all :D; more..................................

Heino Freiherr von Künsberg-Weidenberg (September 2nd, 1905 - Speyer/Bavaria - January 29th, 1984 Ascona/Ticino, Switzerland).

Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross awarded on September 16th, 1943 as Oberstleutnant and Kommandeur of Grenadier-Regiment 188, 68. Infanterie-Division.

AFAIK von Künsberg was awarded his Knight's Cross for actions at the Dnieper River (any more details?).
