    Default Uniform study of the SS-Wirtschafts-Verwaltungshauptamt (WVHA) circa June 1942

    Browsing through bpk I came across this interesting group of portraits showing the leaders of the SS-Wirtschafts-Verwaltungshauptamt (WVHA) and its departments circa June 1942. We see August Frank and Georg Lorner as well as other high ranking officers of SS-WVHA. Very interesting to see the type of uniform fashion of the economic and business head of the SS. I would not have expected SS runes on the lower ranking officers in favor of blank tabs. The connection and control between the camp system and the WVHA would lead many of these men to their own dooms. Thanks.

Size:  25.0 KBThe story of these men is contained in this primary source of note. These men could have also answered many questions as are posed here. Their silence is made all the more intriguing by their portraits.
    I also note the lack of uniformity in certain aspects of their uniforms, as well as the absence of cuff titles in some cases, as well.

    I wonder if the blank collar patch for the RFSS and SS Hauptaemter was phased out by 1942?

    Does one of you know?

    Thanks F-B.
    As always I am thankful for your participation here. I wonder what cufftitle Georg Lorner is wearing.

    The Avalon Project : The Pohl Case
    The link above connects to the indictment read at the USA v. Pohl et. al and is very interesting to read. It mentions most of these men pictured above. The Avalon project contains transcripts of the more famous Nuremberg Trials as well. Inside the testimony is one of the first postwar examinations of SS history and structure and also makes very interesting reading.

    "Reichsführung-SS", probably. There is a photo of Hans Kammler wearing it.

    Thank you for the additional and worthwhile material. The green book was the document prepared by the Pohl and co defendants to explain the roles and missions of the WVHA.

    The characters portrayed above are quite scary looking which brings an extra coldness to the uniforms in study. Thankyou JHAM for posting the photos of these so called men. Regards Larry
