Abraham Setrakian's tattoo (and the name Eichhorst tends to call him aside from "The Jew") is "A230385." The tattoos were only administered at the Auschwitz camp complex, while Setrakian was held at Treblinka. Also, once letters were introduced into the tattoos, each letter only went up to 20,000 before the next letter was reached; so the progress would be A19998, A19999, A20000, B00001. This process wasn't started until 1944, whereas Setrakian was put into the camps in 1940. Even the original series of tattoos issued only went up to 202499. See more
