SS-Obersturmbannfuehrer Albert Konrad Gemmeker (far right) entertains guests visiting Westerbork for Christmas celebrations.

Pictured from left to right are: Frau Winkelkaemper (secretary of Ferdinand Hugo Aus der Fuenten), SS-Haupsturmbannfuehrer Ferdinand Hugo Aus der Fuenten (Head of the Central Office of Jewish Emigration in Amsterdam), Elisabeth Helena Hassel-Muellender (Gemmeker's mistress) and Gemmeker. At the time this photo was taken, Gemmeker had only been commandant of Westerbork since the previous October. He therefore arranged for a banquet to be held at Westerbork in celebration of both Christmas and his new position.
