Jadwiga Bogucka

Note:  was it the journalist or reporter who was interviewing this woman who made such a critical error of the Number being 86356 or was it the woman in the photograph being interviewed?  He actual number according to the Nazi concentration camp badges system would have been:  B6356 - read the article Nazi concentration camp badges  and according to her badge color, she could not have been Jewish.  Additionally it is reported in an article that I read, that either she or the reporter states that the above photo of the concentration camp uniform was her original one worn in the camp.  Does that look like it is a 70 year old piece of fabric that has somehow retained a pristine condition now for 70 years?  No, it looks like it was made just yeasterday?  Further research required....

Note:  Tattoos and numbers:  The System of Identifying Prisoners at Auschwitz

Note:  Only those prisoners selected for work were issued serial numbers; those prisoners sent directly to the gas chambers were not registered and received no tattoos.

Note:  prisoner numbers was introduced in May 1940, well before the practice of tattooing began. This first series was given to male prisoners and remained in use until January 1945, ending with the number 202,499. Until mid-May 1944, male Jewish prisoners were given numbers from this series.

Note:  Approximately 90,000 female prisoners were identified with a series of numbers created for female prisoners in March 1942 until May 1944. Each new series of numbers introduced at Auschwitz began with “1.” Some Jewish prisoners (but not all) had a triangle tattooed beneath their serial number.

Note:  the SS authorities introduced new sequences of numbers in mid-May 1944. This series, prefaced by the letter A, began with “1” and ended at “20,000.” Once the number 20,000 was reached, a new series beginning with “B” series was introduced. Some 15,000 men received “B” series tattoos. For an unknown reason, the “A” series for women did not stop at 20,000 and continued to 30,000.
