Sorry to interrupt, but are you saying that these to men are the same man? The bare chested man has been positively identified in legal proceedings as Karl Fritzsch of Auschwitz.

Yes, I was confused by that too.

The Flossenbürg memorial has a photo of the older looking Fritzsch: https://www.gedenkstaette-flossenbuerg. ... s-personal

Mmmm.....I'm not convinced the Landesarchiv Nordrhein-Westfalen is correct. It's not unknown for archives to misidentify someone and the two photos look to be of different men, regardless of the age difference.

Like Max, I was skeptical too. Fritzsch was only 42 when he died and Michal’s photo I thought showed an older man. Strange a memorial would use that photo when most know Fritzsch by the other one.

The two images of "Fritzsch" are plainly of different men. J. Duncan makes a very good point on age. Michal's photo shows a man obviously older than 42, so I think we can safely say that it is NOT Karl Fritzsch of Auschwitz.
