    The pictures of the KL Commandant are of Arthur Roedl. They come from a Julfest album compiled during his service in Gross-Rosen. To put the pictures in context I have attached the frontispiece to the album.
    It seems, from photographic evidence, to have become the fashion for camp commandants to sport white jackets as a mark of superiority. Pictures of Stangl, Koch all show them wearing this style of tunic within the camps. I will let others speculate on the psychological background to this.
    Although my interests are primarily in the pre-war years I do have some photos of the white tunic during the war and will locate and post them.

    Thank you very much to for these fascinating pictures and information regarding of the white style tunic. It seems that the wear of the white tunic during the second world war was more common than I first considered, especially for the Heer and even in the Waffen-SS, and the shots of Bittrich are wonderful!

    As F-B said there are more photos and info on the white ss uniform on this outstanding site. But you must extend some type of effort to find what you seek and that is a barrier to most.
    The material here is spread around in a way that is sort of vexing, really. However, if you look closely, there is much material here and it sticks out in the Google search thingy, too.

    This was discussed on WAF. I have never seen a white SS Officers visor......stunning!

    I opened an admiring thread on this material elsewhere. Very fine caps of great rarity.

    I can honestly say that I did not expect so much interest in this topic, and as such, I have collated several photographs of white uniforms of the Third Reich and have posted several of them below along with sources:
