SS-Hauptsturmführer Dr. Karl Babor was an Austrian physician who was Lagerarzt (Camp Physician) in several concentration camps, including Dachau and Gross-Rosen. In 1935 he joined the SS and the NSDAP, at the time illegal in Austria. From November of 1941 he was, together with Friedrich Entress, the camp physician of Gross-Rosen concentration camp, where he performed killings of inmates by lethal injection. Both received the War Merit Cross 2nd class for this. From June 1942 on Babor was a physician at the ‘Biochemische Versuchsstation’ (Bio Chemical Test Facility) in Dachau concentration camp. There he performed cruel and painful experiments on inmates and many of them died. He then was transferred to Natzweiler-Struthof concentration camp where he also acted as the camp physician.
In December of 1943 he was transferred to SS Hauptamt DIII, the ‘Inspektion der Konzentrationslager’. From August 1944 on he became the physician of I. Bataillon des SS Panzer-Grenadier-Regiments 6 „Theodor Eicke“ der 3. SS-Panzer-Division „Totenkopf“. At the end of the war he was arrested and became a POW with the French. In the early 1950’s he migrated to Ethiopia and opened a doctor’s office in Addis Abeba. When inm the 1960’s the Austrian authorities were looking for him to have him stand trial for the crimes that he committed in the concentration camps, he committed suicide.
In the first document, dated 1 May 1943 and issued in KL Dachau, Dr. Karl Babor notifies the SS-Personalhauptamt that he was promoted to SS-Sturmbannführer of the Waffen-SS on the Führer’s birthday 20 April 1943 and that his daughter Dagmar was born on 19 March 1943. He signed it in ink.
The second document is an evaluation of the character and performances of Dr. Karl Babor, signed by no other than the commandant of Dachau concentration camp, SS-Obersturmführer Martin Gottfried Weiss! The evaluation was written and signed in 1943 in Dachau and Weiss. The commandant of Dachau attests that Babor is working as KL Dachau’s camp physician since August of 1942 and he has only good things to say about him, that he works well together with the camp commandant, that he is well-liked among the other SS personnel and that he is an exemplary soldier and SS man.
We have never seen, let alone offered a document that is signed by a concentration camp physician that came with an evaluation signed by the camp commandant! Weiss was also temporary commandant of Majdanek concentration camp. He was convicted of war crimes and executed in Landsberg prison in 1946.
