Rachel,

Start with the Arolsen Archives arolsen-archives.org and the Auschwitz State Museum.

Do the records specifically mention that this is his Auschwitz number?  If so, there might be a letter (A- or B-) in front of it.  See this article about Auschwitz's prisoner numbering system from the USHMM Holocaust Encyclopedia for more information.

Prisoners received a new prisoner number every time they entered a new camp, so 11060 might be a number from another camp.
