Thea Miesl was a female Nazi guard in several concentration camps during World War II.
Thea (Therese) Miesl (or Miesel) was born in Munich-Feldmoching, a Munich suburb on October 15, 1922. She worked various jobs, until her conscriptment into the SS Women's Auxiliary (SS Gefolge) in early October 1944. On October 15, 1944, her twenty-second birthday, she entered the Ravensbruck concentration camp to begin her new career, a female guard in Nazi camps. For four weeks Thea trained under SS Stellvertretende Oberaufseherin (Replacement Chief Wardress) Dorothea Binz in the finer points of "Schadenfreude" (malicious pleasure). In mid-November 1944, Thea was one of several guards to guard a transport of women prisoners to the Dachau concentration camp near her home town of Munich. Somewhere between December 1944 and March 1945 Thea Miesl once again oversaw a transport of women prisoners to the Kaufering subcamp near Landsberg, Germany. Only a handful of women guards served in the chain of camps, nineteen in all, nine for women. In the camps, Thea was a cruel and cold hearted guard. She used abuse and brute force to terrorize female prisoners. In early April 1945, while the Kaufering camps were being evacuated, Thea left and went back to her home in Munich-Feldmoching. She has never been prosecuted for her war crimes. (It was on wikipedia; now it is seen when you type her name in).

Hello,

the photo of Liesel Zakrzewski doesn't show a concentration camp guard. It's a retouched photo of a Heer Nachrichtenhelferin (Army signals auxiliary). The skull head (fantasy item) and the SS breast badge (wrong position) have been added later. In autumn 1944 the Waffen-SS took over 170 signals auxiliaries from the Army that were no longer needed there. The Waffen-SS on the other hand stil was searching for qualified female signallers (Mühlenberg, 2011, pp.78). I think Zakrzewski was one of them and her relatives had the portrait altered later to reflect the change in employment.

Hello Torsten,

what I do not understand is the sense of falsity of the picture. It certainly is: but why?

Hello Helge,

to me the cutout of Zakrzewski seems to be from one of the books used by the German Red Cross (DRK) after WWII in their search for MIA personnel.

Late in the war most photo studios had already been closed down so it wasn't possible to have new pictures made each time you were promoted or received a decoration. In many cases existing portraits were just retouched (during or after the war) to reflect the newly obtained status. (Just have a look at the large number of recipients of the very prestigious Knight's Cross where the decoration has been painted into an older photo).

In Zakrezewski's case her family probably wanted to help the search for her by supplying a photo how she might have looked after joining the Waffen-SS. That the retouching wasn't done very competently in this case is lamentable but not unheard of. When it came to rare organizations/decorations retouchers often worked with designs more or less fantasy.

Best regards
Torsten

Hello,

pcfl wrote:ANY NEWS ON LIESEL RECH


this is from http://www.chemistrydaily.com/chemistry/Lieschen_Rech :

Lieschen Rech

Lieschen Rech was a female guard at several concentration camps from 1944 until April 1945.

Lieschen (Liesl) Anna Luise Rech was born in Oranienburg, Germany on January 10, 1923. In 1940 she married and received the name Lieschen Laskowski. In 1944 Lieschen was conscripted and sent to the Flossenburg concentration camp to be trained as a camp guard. Eventually the overseer served in various camps; Mittweida, Oranienburg Auer III, Ravensbruck, Gelsenkirchen, Buchenwald, and last in the Buchenwald subcamp at Benefeld, Germany. In April 1945 she fled the camp and was never apprehended. Lieschen has never been tried by any Allied Armies for war crimes.

I don't think there's a connection to the Fräulein you were looking for in the other thread viewtopic.php?f=77&t=163298
