Hi
During the 90's this officer was often indentified as BISCEVIĆ but now as Hstuf ÐOZO (and I trust them). But is someone have a picture of BISCEVIĆ and what was his latest rank in SS-Stubaf. or -Ostubaf.?

Hello, Phil

The pictured Hstuf. is indeed Đozo.

Biščević was an Ostubaf., but I don't have any confirmed photos of him yet.

Cheers,
Ivan

It's not a Bosnian but an officer in the Handschar. I'm speaking about Karl Josef Fischer - he was a doctor in Auschwitz and was transferred to Handschar on 1 January 1944. Does anybody have more information about his service in the Handschar?

Hi Ivan
Thanks for your answer on the last rank of Biščević. He was one of the high rank bosnian officer (maybe the high rank) and no pic of him nowhere, in books or on the net.

Here is an alleged photo (poor quality) of Oberstumbannführer Biščević, haven't heard anyone denying or accepting the photo, maybe someone here knows!

Hello, Filip (and :welcome: )

As you can clearly see by his collar patch in this good quality copy of the photo (from BPK), it's not Biščević, nor an Oberstumbannführer, but a common soldier. I wonder what kind of mind spreads all that recent misinformation... :x I strongly advise against using such sources on the forum board, and in general. People write whatever nonsense that comes to their mind and then we spend our valuable time here correcting it. It's better to simply ignore such websites.

How it comes that there is no confirmed photo of Biščević? He was the highest ranked Bosnian Muslim.

Biography of Kasim Mašić:
Imam and Ustuf Kasim Mašić was in the anti tank department 13, born on 9.11.1919 in the village Luka near Ilijaš, Sarajevo, died in Travnik on 3.2.2001.
He finished Gazi Husrev bey Medresa and High Šerijat - theological school. After education the leadership of Islamic Community (Ulema Medžlis) submitted six graduates of this high school to be Imams in the newly formed Bosniak SS-Division "Handschar". Kasim's friend Alija Izetbegović (member of Young Muslims and Future president of Bosnia) told him to not go to SS-Division "Handschar" but he had to go because many Bosniaks were in the 13 SS Formation which motivated him and the other Imams.
He was captured by Communists in Zagreb in the spring of 1945. He even met Halim Malkoč in the Zenica prison.
He would spend rest of his life as an Imam in Šarena Džamija in Travnik.
