In 1941 and 1942 prisoners admitted into Auschwitz were not only given
prisoner numbers but also photographed, the last view of persons almost
all of whom perished. While some of these mug shots were lost, many were
saved. 608 of these mug shots with the identities of the persons who were
photographed have been published in Giuseppe Zambon's book Abel's
Gesichter Auschwitz and I recommend that researchers who had relatives who
were murdered in Auschwitz take a look at this book on the admittedly long
shot that a name/face may be of interest.
