Heinrich Hoffman was Adolf Hitler's personal
photographer, and a Nazi party member you can see his party button that is between the two botton of his jacket.
Heinrich Himmler's rank is SS-Reichfuhrer and has his old fighters chevron on his right sleeve. Behind him is an unidentified SS-General with the old fighters chevron the SS-uniforms are of the M1940/1941 pattern.

Heinrich Hoffman and Nazi Party Member survived WWII, and was later arrested by the Americans in May 1945 he was tried and sentenced to 4-years for Nazi profiteering.

Both Hitler and Hoffman received royalties from photos, post cards, stamps and picture books. Many of his photographs were seized by the US and are now held in the National Archives, Washington D.C.
