The Ethnic Group Leader in the Banat and Serbia, SS-Obersturmführer Dr Sepp Janko (on the right), in conversation with the commander of the X-Ray Battalion of the SS Leadership Office, SS-Standartenführer Prof. Dr Hans Holfelder, during the examination of population in the Banat (in the vicinity of Petrovgrad). Dr Holfelder was an unusual character, to say the least; on one hand, he was a scientifically acknowledged and an award-winning physician, and on the other, a person who stated that it is "more humane to murder children than to let them live as Jews". He was killed in action near Budapest at the end of 1944.

Vođa narodnosne grupe u Banatu i Srbiji, SS-oberšturmfirer dr Zep Janko (desno), u razgovoru sa komandantom rendgenskog bataljona Upravnog odeljenja SS-a, SS-štandartenfirerom prof. dr Hansom Holfelderom, tokom pregleda stanovništva u Banatu (u okolini Petrovgrada). Dr Holfelder je bio jedna, najblaže rečeno, neobična ličnost; s jedne strane, bio je naučno priznati i nagrađivani lekar, a s druge, neko ko je izjavio da je "humanije ubiti decu nego ih pustiti da žive kao Jevreji". Poginuo je u borbama kod Budimpešte krajem 1944.
