Hello, everyone

Every now and then, when researching something related to the "Handschar", I check our dear host George's book "Himmler's Bosnian Division". Yesterday, instead of a quick-check, I started re-reading it again and reminded myself of how well written that book truly is. A real treat!

That's all I have to say! ;)

Cheers,
Ivan

Hello, Ivan

That is true, from time to time I just take the book and read some pages and it's always interesting! Sometimes I wonder how much time it took to write the book, to be honest.

Hello!
First of all, I think this photo was already shared here but I have a question. From left to right; Unknown, Alexander Eggersdorfer, Karl-Gustav Sauberzweig. Does anybody know in which town this photo was taken? According to the website it was taken on 17th April 1944, Bosnia.
I hope that somebody can help me.

The place is Brčko, March 1944, the division's return to Bosnia. Photo by SS-PK Nonnenmacher.
