0238 | Photo | SS-Freiwilligen-Division "Prinz Eugen"



Operation "White". Upon completion of the operation, soldiers of the SS Division "Prinz Eugen" prepare food together with the Ustashas (allegedly for workers), during the mission of capturing and securing bauxite mines southwest of Mostar. This extremely rare joint photo of SS men and Ustashas was published as part of the "first sensational report on the fighting against Partisans in Croatia" and an example of successful German-Croatian cooperation. The Reichsführer-SS (Heinrich Himmler), however, did not have too many words of praise for his Croatian allies, the Ustashas; quite the contrary, he considered them a gang of bandits, and their NDH – a ridiculous state.

Operacija "Belo". Po završetku operacije, vojnici SS-divizije "Princ Eugen" spremaju hranu zajedno sa ustašama (navodno za radnike), tokom akcije zauzimanja i obezbeđenja boksitnih rudnika jugozapadno od Mostara. Ova izuzetno retka zajednička slika esesovaca i ustaša objavljena je kao deo "prve senzacionalne reportaže o borbama protiv partizana u Hrvatskoj" i primer uspešne nemačko-hrvatske saradnje. Rajhsfirer SS-a (Hajnrih Himler), međutim, nije imao previše reči hvale za svoje hrvatske saveznike, ustaše; naprotiv, smatrao ih je razbojničkim bandama, a njihovu NDH – apsurdnom državom.
