Three SS officers study a document during the dedication of the new SS hospital while two others look on.

Pictured left to right are Dr. Eduard Wirths, Dr. Enno Lolling, and Commandant Richard Baer. Standing to their right are Adjutant Karl Hoecker and former Commandant Rudolf Hoess.

Dr. Wirths also received his promotion to Sturmbannfuehrer and decorated with the War Service Cross 1st Class at the same time and this might be what is being portrayed here.
