Documents relate to Dr. Heinrich Fenigstein's role as a camp doctor at the Hessental labor camp. One document identifies him as such, giving him permission to leave the camp between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on official business, and the other gives him authority to purchase medication in his duties. Both are signed by the camp commandant.
