These armbands were wearing by people who had a permission work in Concentration Camp including crematorium workers. As you know all Jews wore armbands with the Star of David on them. It was permissible to enter and leave the Jewish Quarter. Jews with work papers might enter the Aryan Quarter, white Aryans were permitted to enter the Jewish Quarter. Each day Jews would go out to work in the barracks factory and return home that evening. Jewish workers were identified by an armband with a Star of David and a number which corresponded to the one on their work papers. Later they were issued square patches, to wear along with their armbands, on which was darned the letter "W" meaning "Wichtig" (important). This meant that they must be preserved and safeguarded, and that the Gestapo must not do them any harm. As you can see armband has a concentration camp stamp AUSCHWITZ and prisoners number 18388. The armband were wearing by Gerhard Fabisz - he was a prisoner in Auschwitz and had a prisoners number 18388 - please look at here or on the images bellow.
