Photograph | Photograph Number: 34753

Three SS officers socialize on the grounds of the SS retreat of Solahuette outside of Auschwitz.

From left to right they are: Richard Baer (Commandant of Auschwitz), Dr. Josef Mengele and Rudolf Hoess (the former Auschwitz Commandant).

[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
