Thanks, von thoma.

To change the subject, before the quiz is renamed "KZ ID Quiz": one of the (nowadays) more neglected parts of the SS and the German Armed Forces in general are war correspondents, even though some of them had a true celebrity status at the time. Now, this guy may not have been much of a celebrity, but his photos, particularly those taken at the Neuhammer training camp, which reached magazine covers back in the day, are still quite well-known today, appearing on several book covers.

Who is this SS-Rottenführer and Kriegsberichter?

Yes indeed :)

Best known for his late-1943 Neuhammer photos of Muslim volunteers and the Grand Mufti (author of Islam und Judentum) visiting them, which were published inside various European newspapers during the war and reached covers of Kölnische Illustrierte Zeitung and Wiener Illustrierte.

Even though he was never actually attached to Muslim volunteers but only photographed them on a couple of occasions in the training camp, Mielke remains their best known photographer to this day; these are some of the modern book covers with his photos:

The quiz photo I posted was taken by his comrade Falkowski, source: NARA. A self-portrait of Mielke (taken in front of a mirror) can be found in the same source, among his own films.

Over to Max!
