Variation

This document is a variation of the prisoner registration form. Duplicates of blank prisoner registration forms were sometimes typed out in the concentration camps. The concentration camp administration would sometimes resort to this method if there were not enough pre-printed forms available – such as when numerous transports or large transports had arrived. The ITS archive has examples of these typed forms from Ravensbrück as well as from the Stutthof concentration camp. Sometimes there are variations in the individual fields on the form. The prisoner registration forms from Stutthof, for example, do not include questions about the prisoner’s military service, political party membership or official positions held within a party.

Questions and answers

  • What are considered variations in the ITS e-Guide?

    The ITS e-Guide distinguishes between main cards and variations. The reason for this is that there are sometimes different versions of a single type of document that can vary significantly.

    The documents referred to as main cards in the e-Guide are standard documents that were used especially frequently in the concentration camps and about which a good deal of information is available. The ITS archive also holds variations of these documents, however, which served the exact same purpose as the corresponding main cards, but which look different. There are various reasons for this: Some concentration camps used their own individually produced cards instead of the standard versions. In many other cases, individual cards and forms were used before the concentration camp administration later insisted on the use of standardized pre-printed forms.
