The "Deathís Head" was the symbol of the SS-Totenkopfverbande
(one of the original three branches of the SS, along with the Algemeine
SS and the Waffen SS), whose purpose was to guard the concentration
camps. Most of the original members of this organization were later
transferred into and became the core of a Waffen SS division, the
Deathís Head Division. The symbol is most often seen as a tattoo,
which sometimes indicates that its wearer has murdered one of the
movementís enemies (e.g., a Jew or other minority).
