Photograph | Photograph Number: 34794

SS officer, Karl Hoecker salutes in front of an array of wreaths during a military funeral near Auschwitz.

The original caption reads "Beisetzung von SS Kameraden nach einem Terrorangriff." (Burying our SS comrades from a terror attack.)

This probably is the aftermath of the September 13th bombing of IG Farben in which 15 SS men died in the SS residential blocks and 28 were seriously wounded.

Pictured in the background are Josef Kramer and Karl Moeckel.
