Hello! I would like to know who the SS-Hauptsturmführer in this photo is. It looks like it is Herman Müller-John but I’m not certain. Correct me if I’m wrong, but the photo looks to be taken in 1933.

Please let us also remember about the dark side of Obermusikmeister der SS-Leibstandarte "Adolf Hitler" Herman Müller-John. Docs waiting for you in Ludwigsburg.

Hello, Ehrenwacher

Yes, that is Müller-John.

Hello, Orlov

The murder of 50 Polish Jews has been mentioned on pages 1, 2 and 3 of this thread, and there are two threads about it in the war crimes section (first, second). Thank you for sharing the archival signature of related documents.

Cheers,
Ivan

Several posts dealing with SS bands in "Triumph des Willens" have been split off into a thread of their own.

Note that, the same as the file copied from the non-existent popflock website, the files copied from metapedia and germaniainternational can only be considered sourceless, not originating from those websites but from other sources, which they failed to credit.

Cheers,
Ivan
