    The image above left displays insignia for a Jewish political prisoner both from before mid-1944 and after mid-1944. The star form - constructed using two separate pieces, one being a yellow triangle and another red, was used up until mid-1944, afterwhich, the red Winkel was used with a yellow band sewn above - the red signified that the inmate was a political prisoner.

    A fact often overlooked - which can be understood due to the well known yet partly staged photographs taken by Soviet liberators at the Stammlager (main camp) at Auschwitz, is that small children did not wear striped uniforms, save for, in all likelihood, one example. The Buchenwald Kind Stefan Jerzy Zweig, who arrived at the camp aged three, was given a specially made uniform at the camp and reportedly taught to sing songs and parade around for the guards entertainment. Small children generally wore the clothing that they arrived in, such as the pieces shown in the attachment below, an image taken around the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz back in 2007. The display forms part of the permanent exhibition.
