[PMO neg. no. 21136/1]  
  Kommandantur-Unterkünfte / Garrison HQ accommodation
Drawing 65A of 14th December 1942
Scale 1:100 
  · Kellergeschoß / Basement   
  · Dachgcschoß / Roof space   
  · Ostansicht / East elevation   
  · Westansicht u. Schnitt E-F / West elevation and section E-F   
  Plans of the basement area and roof space and views of the west and east sides of section X.
Section X was to house 52 SS men  

  The total capacity of the north wing of the New Garrison Headquarters was planned to be about 350 men. The war was [to] reduce these medieval SS dreams to nothing, however. At Birkenau, for example, their castles became wooden huts, like those of the prisoners, though there was a world of difference in that their living conditions were nevertheless decent whereas those of the prisoners were indescribably bad.
