Offered for sale is this rare original 1939 document, signed by SS-Hauptscharführer Gerhard Palitzsch. SS-Hauptscharführer Gerhard Palitzsch (June 17, 1913 – December 7, 1944) was one of the most brutal and vicious of all guards in the concentration camps, from 1940 to 1943 in Auschwitz, he was always out to terrorize the inmates. He enjoyed to participate in mass executions and even claimed to a fellow SS member that he personally shot 25,000 people in the back of the head. Like many of the guards he enriched himself by stealing property robbed from the inmates and became subject of SS investigations for theft and corruption. Probably as a disciplinary punishment he was sent to a sub-camp at Brünn, Czech Republic. After his wife dies from typhus he was believed to have started sexual relations with a female prisoner, therefore arrested and sent back to Auschwitz, this time a prisoner himself in Block 11, accused of ‘Race Defilement’. He was sentenced to death but instead he was sent to a penal unit. In June 1944, he was thrown out of the SS. His later fate is unknown. He is said to have fallen during the battle of Budapest.
In a letter from the resistance movement, smuggled out of Auschwitz, he was described as “the greatest bastard of Auschwitz”.  His colleague, Perry Broad, wrote about him in his report that “he enjoyed taking part in the mass executions”. Rudolf Höss, who was not hesitant in his criticism of his staff, wrote in his memoirs: “Palitzsch was the most cunning and sly creature I ever got to know during my long, many-sided duty in the various concentration camps. He literally climbed over dead bodies in order to satisfy his lust for power.” (source: Wikipedia)
