Dr. Viktor Frankl - The author of this book is also featured as its only identified character, but the book is written to reflect the horrors experienced by all who endured this imprisonment rather than this character's individual experiences.
Capos - These characters were prisoners who acted as trustees to the Nazi officers in return for special privileges and treatment within the camp.
SS Officers - These were official soldiers of the Nazi government assigned to monitor the intake, transport, and camp/work behavior of the prisoners. The author discusses his first interaction with these characters immediately upon being taken prisoner in the camp.
SS Commander - The reason for specific mention of this man is his display of kindness even as a member of a brutal army.
