Hi Fangio, I just have two suggestions:

Hermann Weiser
Georg Preuß

I lean toward the first one. I don't have any photos of them from the left profile, so its hard to tell (I may be way of).

best,
Miha

I don't think it is Weiser.

I think the man with the KC ist Gerhard Pleiß, the man left of him could be Hermann Weiser.

Thanks guys. I think Ingo is right. The man with the RK is Gerhard Pleiss. If I'm not wrong he was a tall man and he won the RK before Weiser, that's why he's without this award in this pic. Please correct if I'm wrong.
Best,

FANGIO

Fangio, I thought you meant that the Knight's cross holder was Weiser.

Hello Fangio!

The same photograph is in Jost W. Schneider's "Their Honor was Loyalty! - An Illustrated and Documentary History of the Knight's Cross holders of the Waffen-SS and Police 1940-1945" (2nd ed. 1993), and he identifies the RKT as Gerd Pleiss.
