Viktor Brack – then and after. Brack was an SS-Oberführer (of the Allgemeine SS), chief of Office II of the Chancellery of the Führer and organiser of the euthanasia programme in Germany, in which over 70000 people were murdered (who, according to the German authorities, were "unworthy of life"). He served in Yugoslavia as a member of the Waffen-SS, from August 1942 to November 1944, at first as assistant to the quartermaster (O2) of the SS Division "Prinz Eugen" and then as quartermaster (Ib) of the V SS Mountain Corps. He was sentenced to death in Nuremberg (at the so-called Doctors' Trial) in 1947 and was hanged in Landsberg on 2 June 1948. He is pictured as an SS-Untersturmführer and officer of the "Prinz Eugen" Division in Bosnia and Herzegovina (after he was awarded the Iron Cross 2nd Class), and a few moments before hanging, in the Landsberg prison.

Viktor Brak – onda i posle. Brak je bio SS-oberfirer (opšteg SS-a), načelnik odeljenja II Firerove kancelarije i organizator programa eutanazije u Nemačkoj, u kojem je ubijeno preko 70000 ljudi (koji, prema proceni nemačkih vlasti, "nisu bili vredni života"). U Jugoslaviji je služio kao pripadnik SS-trupa, od avgusta 1942. do novembra 1944. godine, isprva kao pomoćnik načelnika pozadine (O2) SS-divizije "Princ Eugen", a potom kao načelnik pozadine (Ib) V brdskog SS-korpusa. Osuđen na smrt u Nirnbergu (na tzv. Doktorskom suđenju) 1947. godine, a obešen je u Landsbergu 2. juna 1948. Na fotografijama je prikazan kao SS-unteršturmfirer i oficir "Princ Eugen" divizije u Bosni i Hercegovini, nakon što je odlikovan Gvozdenim krstom II reda, i neposredno pred vešanje, u landsberškom zatvoru.
