Perhaps the rarest artifact in the Holocaust exhibit, this concentration camp uniform is one of very few still in existence. It was given to the exhibit by Jack Bomstein, whose father Moritz wore the uniform while he was imprisoned at Buchenwald.

Note: Allied prisoners of war interned at Buchenwald in 1944 had their uniforms taken away, and they too were forced to wear uniforms similar to this one.
