Erwin Rösener? Don't think so!

Post by Max Williams » 04 Feb 2004 12:39

This is a photo which appeared in a 1936 edition of Das Schwarz Korps. I have an original caption note which identifies the SS-Obf. as Rösener, but I am sure it's not him. Problem is, I'm not sure who he is!

Rösener

I do not agree with you MH, PS.

If the rank is correct he could well be Rösener. The quality of this pic is not that good, but if you compare this man with the photo's in Yerger's book......

I do not agree it is Rosener
It certainly looks like him and why would they issue a wrong identification.

Sorry, Phil, but I think you couldn't be more wrong. Look at the difference in profile. Rösener's chin protrudes whereas the SS-Obf.'s does not. The Obf. also looks much older. As for the caption....it is quite common for contemporary captions to be incorrect. It's human error!

Hello Max,
Firstly I didn't want to give my opinion because it's Rösener for me, but Your last post induced me to speak..
The Obf. also looks much older

Man on this photo looks like 35 - 40 yo....Rösener was born in 1902...so matches...
And VERY similiar eyebrow....
Remember "DSK' was newspaper with not best quality pics....
So, I agree with Philmil - without doubts it's Rösener....
Regards
Greyfinn

I think this is one we'll never get to the bottom of unless someone has an original copy of the DSK photo. I can't say I agree with you, but that's the point of putting this sort of photo on the forum isn't it? Thanks for everyone's contributions, as always.

In these paper-photographs everybody looks old.

Yes, I have another photo of Erwin Rösener with that same side of the face in question. Infact when I first saw this photo I didn't think it was Rösener, because he looks different from that side of the face....... but it is Rösener, when he was standing with two other men at his trial. I have a copy of this photo, but I can't get it to copy on Axis. It is a small photo. I copy photos from Axis to my photo album, but I can't copy them on Axis. Why?? What am I doing wrong?
