Trude Baumann hand-stitched these small felt charms while she was recovering from an illness at Oederan Concentration Camp in eastern Germany. Women imprisoned at this sub-camp of Flossenburg manufactured ammunition supplies. The Oederan factory had previously been a textile mill, which may explain the availability of felt and sewing materials.
