SS-Ostuf. Karl Fischer

Post by Shane A Beaver » 27 Jan 2016 17:37

Can anybody provide me with more information about SS-Ostuf. Karl Fischer, please? He succeeded Radomski as Commandant of the Haidari concentration camp near Athens in February 1944 and held the post until September 1944. Does anybody have his date of birth, promotion dates and SS number? What was his earlier career and what was his fate? Was he Gestapo or another SS formation? Thanks in advance.
