GERMAN WWII CONCENTRATION CAMP DOCTOR’S OUTFIT.
A highly interesting and very rare artefact from WWII being a jacket, trousers and white doctor’s coat from a Dutch concentration camp prisoner who was a qualified medical doctor. We have in the past only ever had two other totally original identified concentration camp uniforms, one was from a Belgium political prisoner , another was from a French female prisoner and her daughter’s outfit, this again is a foreign national and being a Dutch doctor. The grouping consists of a white linen jacket, three button front, open lapel in the form of jacket identical to a modern day sports jacket or blazer. Attached to the upper right hand sleeve are the red, white and blue colours of Holland, with a crudely applied red cross to the central white panel. The jacket is foxed storage stained overall. The camp uniform comprising of the standard blue and white striped, four button closure, turned collar without any pockets, applied to the upper right breast is a section of black satin material with an ‘H’ over ‘A’ downward pointing red triangle with the white lettering number‘101321’, to the upper right sleeve a small section of white linen with painted applied red cross with the matching issue trousers. To complete the grouping is a pair of the wooden soled ankle boots with the thick soles in wood, the lower part of the foot section in leather with the upper part in maroon web. Accompanying this rare artefact is a Dutch written book on the history of prisoner medical personnel in concentration camps. The outfit has been consigned to us from Holland and it was purchased from a person that did readings on memorial days and schools and at one reading the son of the doctor owner of this uniform came to the previous owner and offered him the set of readings. The name of his father was never revealed. The person who did the readings became so interested in the medical personnel in concentration camps he wrote this complete 150 page book and used this particular outfit as the colour cover photograph, which is included with the uniform.
