    For those interested in the Verwaltungsamt SS and its progress into economic enterprises, d'Alquen posted some very useful documentary material, as did I in many, many threads on same. There is also a historical research section at Dachau today which must have publications. The existence of the clothing works and depot at Dachau (and elsewhere) is a matter of the historical record with numerous, numerous primary evidence too numerous to list here, but surely beginning with the trial documents for Nuremberg (the blue series) as well as the records of the SS WVHA which have survived and for which finding aids exist on the Bundesarchiv website, as well as many secondary works, some included in this thread.

    So, besides SS insignia, what else would have been made at Dachau, Waffen-SS uniforms, Allgemeine SS VT / TV tunics, uniforms, SS visor caps ??

    AS we know there were a lot of Jewish tailors that would have ended up at Dachau.

    I also have purchased large amounts of this material from vets over the years. The Handschar fez is also a pick-up from the same stores. Many vets found the fez a convenient container to hold collar tabs and cuff titles. Without a doubt, there are still some hoards of this material yet to be uncovered from the effects of 45th Division vets.
