This term cannot be used for all SS camp personnel, but in the example you gave, it is well justified. This goes for any role or rank that is evident or can be reasonably surmised. Describing someone like Joseph Mengele as an "SS doctor" would be fine, too. Or "SS volunteer auxiliary" or "SS officer" if that can be reasonably inferred from the uniform or context. I thought you were looking for a generally applicable blanket term for cases where the role and rank are unknown and cannot be inferred, which is why I mentioned "SS member".

Until the 20th century, the lands of modern-day Belarus belonged to several countries, including the Principality of Polotsk, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, and the Russian Empire. In the aftermath of the Russian Revolution (Russian Revolution (1917)), Belarus declared independence as the Belarusian People's Republic, succeeded by the Socialist Soviet Republic of Byelorussia, which became a founding constituent republic of the Soviet Union (Republics of the Soviet Union) and was renamed as the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic (BSSR). Belarus lost almost half of its territory to Poland after the Polish-Soviet war. Much of the borders of Belarus took their modern shape in 1939 when some lands of the Second Polish Republic were reintegrated into it after the Soviet invasion of Poland and were finalized after World War II. The republic was redeveloped in the post-war years. In 1945, Belarus became a founding member of the United Nations, along with the Soviet Union and the Ukrainian SSR.
