Looks like Model (here as Generaloberst) pointing to the map...

And just a guess, but perhaps Walther von Seydlitz-Kurzbach at left...

Thanks Mike! :)

It was supposed to be during Zitadelle, but I don't trust the captions on internet pages which cease to exist after a short time...

*EDIT*

Thank you for both indentifications!

best regards,

Well if it WAS taken during Zitadelle, that obviously rules out von Seydlitz-Kurzbach.

Knowledgeable gentlemen,

any idea about this RKT? Caption says it was taken in Albania after Italian surrender,the men on the right are aparently Albanians in Italian uniforms. Is he a GebJäger? (source: Piekalkiewicz,"Der Kampf auf dem Balkan 1940-1945",München 1985)

Thanks,
