Jacket (wedding suit combination): Former KZ inmate's
Double-breasted short sleeved jacket of lightweight cream bunting material, fastened with two rows of three white dished horn buttons. A decorative half-belt is attached to the front, sweeping to the rear, and there are two open patch pockets to the front, one each side of the lower waist. The sleeves are decoratively pleated and gathered at the shoulder.
This is part of a two-piece suit made by a skilled Austrian former inmate for the wedding of Taube Biber, married 7th August, 1946, at the former concentration camp of Bergen-Belsen.
Taube was born in 1925, a Polish Jew, living in 1939 in Mielec, Poland. She was initially deported to Lublin in March 1942, and later sent to the Krakow Ghetto. Moved on to Plaszow concentration camp, she was later sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau (1943-1944) until being sent to Bergen-Belsen, remaining there until after its liberation, leaving in 1947. Mrs Taube Biber immigrated to England later that same year.
