Bjoern Steinz

Auschwitz (Oswiecim), Poland

A medallion made in 1944 for his wife 'Hani' by Auschwitz prisoner Zbigniew Raynoch and donated to the Auschwitz memorial by his family post war. These items were illegally taken out of the camp by the Austrian Maria Stromberger, the Red Cross head nurse at the SS infirmary, and given to Raynoch's family in Krakow. As a member of the resistance movement in the camp, Raynoch committed suicide during an escape attempt that went wrong on 27 October 1944.
