Concentration Camp Uniforms

Circa 1940s. Three uniforms

These images are different pieces of concentration camp uniforms: a dress, shirt/jacket, and hat. Each is made out of a thick and heavy wool. The first image is a female concentration camp uniform. The second image is a shirt or jacket of a concentration camp uniform. The third image is a hat of a concentration camp uniform. This hat differs from the others because of the red triangle. The red triangle was used to identity political prisoners in Nazi concentration camps. The “U” within the triangle identifies that the prisoner was Hungarian.
