In this case it's the set of the Polish priest Florian Mackowiak, who was given the number 28378 in KL Dachau. He was arrested the 09.06.1941 and he was in Dachau until 04.29.1945!!! Almost 4 years imprisoned, a long period during which he had to suffer the infamous pseudo-medical experiments carried out by the Nazi pseudo-doctors, in this case experiments on Malaria (phlegmon kidney), tuberculosis and bone extraction experiments. This outstanding set comprises his original pants, used in Dachau, with red winkel and number patch he was given in camp to identify him and his cap. It also includes his backpack with a small suitcase that keeps inside several items, dozens of the letters that he sent from camp to relatives, private photos, private documents and small personal items that he kept within the concentration camp Dachau during this long period. Both pants and cap are in good condition, apart from some stains that are very normal in garments used by inmates within camps, having in mind that conditions within camps were horrible and anything but hygienic. Cap and pants are made from thick winter striped fabric, very common in camps like Auschwitz, Dachau or Sachsenhausen, with grayish and blue stripes. Backpack keeps inside his small suitcase, made from leather. When we open it, we can see the striped blanket he was given in Dachau, a mess tin made from aluminum, a beautifully hand painted wooden box with private photos, banknotes, identity cards, etc. and also an improvised bag made from Zeltbahn cammo fabric where he kept sewing thread. Apart from this we find also documents given by KL Dachau authorities to the priest with a list of belongings of this priest, and many other documents.
