Both were Kriegsberichters by the time this image was taken (spring 1944). Svensson had formerly served in the Royal Swedish Navy before he joined the Waffen-SS in 1941 as anti-aircraft instructor in the SS-Flak-Ersatz-Abteilung. He graduated from the SS-Junkerschule Bad Tölz in 1942 and served as Kriegsberichter in 11.SS-Freiwilligen-Panzergrenadier-Division Nordland and 12.SS-Panzer-Division Hitlerjugend. Svensson also covered the battles in the Eastern Mediterranean (with the Luftwaffe). He was born in Stockholm in 1915 and died in Germany in 1999. Images: Public domain.
