A private wwII snapshot of four uniformed men enjoying some leisure in the summer of 1944.

On the far left: Josef Mengele, the Auschwitz doctor who was conducting medical experiments on KZ prisoners at the time this photo was taken, second is Rudolf Höss, the first Aushwitz and later Bergen-Belsen commander, third is Josef Kramer, the Auschwitz commander at the time the photo was taken. The fourth man is unidentified.

From A personal photo album belonging to an employee at Auschwitz, the full album can be seen at the USHMM website here


Their honour was loyalty, attention to duty and the task at hand, and they never questioned authority - They got the job done.


You can go far in the world with that.

Panzer Sturmgeschuetz III, Ausf G
Note the flowers on the Stug and the men wearing ties, a celebration of a kind must be going on.
