Offered for sale is this rare original 1939 document, signed by SS-Obersturmführer Dr. Irmfried Eberl. SS-Obersturmführer Irmfried Eberl was an Austrian psychiatrist and medical director of the euthanasia institutes in Brandenburg and Bernburg. When the T-4 Euthanasia Program commenced, Eberl was not only a willing participant, he did gassings himself. On 1 February 1940, at 29 years old, Eberl became the medical director of the killing facility at Brandenburg. In autumn 1941 he assumed the same position at Bernburg Euthanasia Centre. Despite not being formally ordered to take part, psychiatrists such as Eberl were at the center of each stage of justifying, planning and carrying out the mass murder of those with mental disorders, and constituted the connection to the later annihilation of Jews and other "undesirables" in the Holocaust.
He helped set up and was the first commandant of the Treblinka extermination camp where he worked as SS-Obersturmführer from 11 July 1942 until his dismissal on 26 August 1942. Eberl was first transferred to Chełmno extermination camp but only for a short time and on 11 July 1942, Eberl was transferred to command the Treblinka camp as part of Operation Reinhard. Eberl's poor management of the camp soon proved to be disastrous with decomposing bodies laying around in the open everywhere. SS-Unterscharf. Hans Hingst stated that Dr. Eberl's ambition was to reach the highest possible numbers and exceed all the other camps. So many transports arrived that the disembarkation and gassing of the people could no longer be handled. In 1944 he joined the Wehrmacht for the remainder of the war. After the war ended, Eberl continued to practise medicine in Blaubeuren.  He was arrested after the end of the war in January 1948. Eberl hanged himself the following month to avoid trial.
