A group of Nazi officers stand in front of a building in Solahuette, the SS retreat outside of Auschwitz.

Photograph | Photograph Number: 34740

A group of Nazi officers stand in front of a building in Solahuette, the SS retreat outside of Auschwitz.

Pictured facing the camera, second from the left, is Karl Hoecker. Next to him is SS-Obersturmführer Max Sell, between 1943 and 1945 first Arbeitseinsatzführer in Auschwitz and afterwards in Mittelbau-Dora.

[Based on the officers visiting Solahutte, we surmise that the photographs were taken to honor Rudolf Hoess who completed his tenure as garrison senior on July 29.]

Date
Circa 1944 July 22 - 1944 July 29
