Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Death notice for prisoner Siegmund Pamula, from Krakow, who perished at Gross-Rosen, from phlegmon and sepsis,” signed by the camp doctor Waffen-SS Physician Wilhelm Jobst. Whether this prisoner’s death is the result of brutal conditions in the camp, harsh treatment, or execution is not known. However, the records were often falsified to conceal the treatment prisoners received. Jobst himself was a camp doctor at Gross-Rosen from 1939-1942, after which he was sent to other camps, a satellite camp of Mauthausen and Sachsenhausen. After the war, he was found guilty by a U.S. Military court and sentenced to death.
