Uhlenbrock, Kurt

Kurt Uhlenbrock (2 March 1908 – 7 Aug. 1992), SS Sturmbannführer, was a German physician serving in an SS armored infantry division until 7 August 1942, when he was transferred to the Auschwitz Camp as garrison physician. His primary task was to combat the typhus epidemic which had gotten out of control there and had killed the previous garrison physician Siegfried Schwela on 10 May 1942. However, Uhlenbrock contracted typhus himself relatively quickly, got seriously sick, and barely survived. He was replaced while sick by Eduard Wirths on 4 September 1942, and left Auschwitz for good on 2 October 1942.
