The Eduard Wirths collection relates to SS-Standortarzt Dr. Eduard Wirths (1909-1945), his family, and colleagues, before and while he was stationed at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. The collection consists of fifteen original photographs, some taken at Solahütte, a resort for Nazi personnel located at Auschwitz, and of other physicians, including Dr. Carl Clauberg (1898-1957). The collection also includes a 1944 presentation album, entitled, "SS Truppenlazarett erbaut von der Zentralbauleitung der Waffen-SS und Polizei, Auschwitz OS 1944" which was created to document the construction and opening of the SS troop hospital at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. The construction and interior of the hospital as well as camp laborers are seen in the photographs.
