Heinrich Himmler talks with a young German instructor, Neuhammer, January 1944.
Who is the guy next to Himmler (left side)?

The source says nothing about a place nor a date when this visit happened.
I don't know who the officer is, but the photos were taken in November 1943, while the magazine was released in January 1944. The place is Neuhammer.

Cheers,
Ivan

Hello everyone!

Is this Halim Malkoč?

Hello, BG44

It's Džemal Ibrahimović, imam of the Flak-Abt., which was being inspected by the Mufti (seen in the full version of the photo).
The civilian with fez is Ibrahim Kirlić (seen in some other photos wearing a fedora hat).

The source is Bundesarchiv, via Yad Vashem (search for the number 1797/8).

Cheers,
Ivan

Cheers.

By the way, if you're interested in Malkoč, you can find him in another photo on the Yad Vashem site (search for the number 1797/56).

Halim Malkoč on the left, Abdulah Muhasilović on the right (I don't recognise the person in the middle)

Looks like the person in the middle is a muadhin, calling for prayer (based on his hand's gesture)

I know it is off-topic but I wanted to say that Zvonimir Bernwald passed away on 11th September. Another veteran gone.
