Dr. Rudolf Brandt Photo

Post by Landsberger » 26 Jun 2010 04:25

I understand this photo to be from the Bundesarchiv.
Does anyone know the circumstances of this photo?
What is the uniform he is wearing?

Thanks very much.

Not sure what you mean by circumstances of the photo. It is a photo which appears in his SS personal files and one of which I also have a copy. He is wearing Allgemeine-SS uniform in the rank of SS-Sturmmann. This insignia was worn between May 1933 and October 1934 (Angolia - Cloth Insignia of the SS.)

That's the first photo of our Rudi to show him wearing the SS-uniform. Wasn't it made for his personal file in Himmler's staff?.. Anyway he came there in 1934...

Dear member,
could you please refrain from similar sympathies next time? I think that Rudolf Brandt doesn't deserve it.

Brandt knew the most. As Himmler's secretary, he passed on all of Himmler's notes, letters, and memoranda.
It's only bad he was executed because the man knew so much. He could have explained a lot to future researchers, although I reckon that he did much of that during his trial. Not much has been written on him in English language within the standard books dealing with the SS administration. He was an important figure who should be biographically analysed.

I agree with Duncan. But to the Allies the future researchers were not important, they just wanted justice and someone like Brandt had not other fate that to be hanged.... I hope someday read the transcripts of the Medical Trial.
