Im still trying to find his Soldbuch.
Alot of documents and uniforms were thrown away or into the Sava river as the men were coming home.
Here is a Soldbuch and collection of other documents belonging to an SS Rottenfuhrer
"Sani" from the Handschar Div (he was later promoted to SS-Unterscharfuhrer), his original
surname was Hinko but seemed to have changed it to Heinrich to sound more Germanic which
apparantly a few NCO's did.
His Soldbuch differs from the normal SS type due to it being the version with Serbio/Croat
translation pages in it, these items had been sold at auction recently.
