Wilhelm Christian Bohnsack

Drawn by an artist at Dnjepropetrowsk, Reichskommissariat Ukraine (now Dnipro, Ukraine). The braid around the shoulderboards confirm him as an NCO (non-commissioned officer), but the part denoting rank was not drawn so he could have been Unteroffizier, Unterfeldwebel, Feldwebel or Oberfeldwebel. The collar tabs were common to many ranks, but as a medical man the dark lines would have been blue.

‘Dnjepropetowsk’ is an old spelling for the Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk, and there was indeed a POW camp (kriegsgefangenenlager) there. From Jan 1942 – Feb 1943 it was called Stalag 348 (source https://www.moosburg.org/info/stalag/laglist.html ) which from what his daughter Hanna related (2016) is likely to be where the portrait was drawn.
