Offered for sale is a RARE ORIGINAL INMATE PATCH OF A FEMALE INMATE OF FLOSSENBURG CONCENTRATION CAMP. FULL MONEY BACK GURANTEE FOR AUTHENTICITY. The size of the patch is 2 x 6 inches, the armband is 3 x 7-1/2 inches. This is the original registration card from Flossenbürg concentration camp to where the female inmate Sofia Kania was transferred from Ravensbrück concentration camp on 1 September 1944. Her inmate number there was 33635 and in Flossenbürg it was 51301. The document is in the Holocaust archives and for reference only and NOT included in the sale.
These items came together from the same vet years ago and have been in a collection ever since. The camp uniform inmate patch is from a Polish prisoner named Sofia Kania and she was a prisoner of Flossenbürg concentration camp. Her name is written on the back of the patch along with some other writing which we can’t read. We were able to match this name and prisoner ID number with a document in the Holocaust archives, so it all checks out 100%. (A picture of the document is shown below, for reference only, the document is not in our possession and NOT included). The patch itself has been verified authentic by Norbert Podlesny, author of the trilogy “A Glimpse of Evil”. We do not have the vets name who brought these home or how he managed to obtain the patch. It’s more than likely the owner of the patch survived the war since the vet obtained the item. Had she died it likely would have been destroyed.
The armband is a bit of a mystery and after much research we cannot find any information on what this was used for. We are offering this with the patch as a curiosity piece since the two items originally came together from the same vet and we are sure it’s period to the war or just after the war.
