Juana Bormann, part of a series of mug shots taken of former guards and prisoners from the Belsen camp before their trial in front of a British Military Tribunal.

One of the oldest SS staff members in Bergen-Belsen at age 52, Juana Bormann had a reputation as a sadist. Witnesses constantly repeated how at Auschwitz she would set her dog upon prisoners and watched as they were torn apart. Questions of her sanity arose during the Bergen-Belsen Trial but they were not enough to keep her from being found guilty by the British Military Tribunal. She was sentenced to death and hanged on 13 December 1945 in Hameln, Germany.
