Dr Irmfried Eberl

Post by Schmauser » 14 May 2002 17:04

Dr Irmfried Eberl

Image

Irmfried Eberl was born on the 8th September 1910. When he was a student of medicine he joined the Nazi Party on the 8th September 1931 & then the SS. On the 1st February 1940 he became the Director of the clinic at Brandenburg while the Euthanasia Project was well underway killing the mental & physically disabled. From February to September 1940, Eberl killed 9'772 people. He then transfered to the Bernberg clinic and was responsible for killing 8'601 people.
In the summer of 1942 Eberl became the Commandant of Treblinka Extermination Camp. Here he adopted a system so barbaric that even the SS complained. Eberl would leave the bodies taken from the gas chambers and put them in full view of the arriving prisoners.
His successor Stangl described it "Treblinka that day, was the most horrible than thing i have seen for all the duration of the Third Reich... the stench was indescribable everywhere bodies were decomposing, from hundreds, to thousands ..."
Removed from the SS in 1942, Eberl Committed Suicide while awaiting trial on the 6th February 1948.

Does anyone have anything to add?

Franz Stangl

Image

Stangl was born on the 28th March 1898 at Altmünster in Austria. He joined the police and after the annexation of Austria he was recruited into the Euthanasia Programme, where he served at Hartheim & Bernberg. In 1942 he was appointed Commandant of the Sobibor Extermination Camp, and then subsequently Treblinka Extermination Camp. He supervised over the deaths of over a million people. After Treblinka's closure he was sent to Triest along with the other Aktion Reinhardt personnel, under the command of Odilo Globocnik, where he supervised the extermination of western jews at San Sabba. After the war, Stangl travelled to Syria, then Brazil through Italy with the help of Bishop Hudal and the so called Odessa Escape Group. He worked for the Völkwagen firm in Sao Paolo. His residence was discovered by West Germany in 1967 and he was extradited for trial. Found Guilty he was Sentenced to Life Imprisonment. Stangl Died in Prison on the 28th June 1971.

Anyone got anymore?

Kurt Franz

Post by Schmauser » 14 May 2002 21:32

Kurt Franz

Image

Born in 1914, Franz joined the Wehrmacht in 1935 and at the end of his service volunteered for the SS. Joining the staff as a guard at Buchenwald, Franz was transferred to the Euthanasia Programme, where he was tasked with killing the patients. In April 1942 he was transferred to the Belzec Extermination Camp, by September he was on the staff at Treblinka on the special orders of the commandant Franz Stangl. Franz displayed sadistic cruelty towards the inmates and was nicknames 'Lalka' - 'The Doll' by the Prisoners. Promoted to officer rank on Himmler's orders, franz wasn't present during the Treblinka Uprising. Afterwards he was tasked with the dismantling of the camp, and execution of the last batch of prisoners. After the war Franz was put on trial from 1964 to 1965 and was found guilty and sentenced to Life Imprisonment. He was released in 1993 on reasons of health.

Did I miss any details?

This what I found on Franz

Kurt Hubert Franz was born 17th of January 1917 in Düsseldorf, Germany. Franz joined the SS in the mid-thirties and served at various camps, including Buchenwald and until he in 1940 was assigned to the "Euthansia" project. He was assigned to most of these sites including Grafeneck, Sonnenstein, Hartheim and Brandenburg. Here his primary function was that of a cook, which was trained as and worked as in civilian life. In late 1941 he was transferred to the headquarters of the "Euthanasia" project, T4 in Berlin - once again as a cook. On 20th of April 1942 having attained the rank of SS-Scharführer he was transferred first to Lublin and then to the death camp of Belzec. In the late summer of 1942 he was transferred to Treblinka where he was at first in charge of the Ukranian guards, but soon became the de-facto daily manager of the camp.

He was known as one of the most sadistic and cruel members of the SS and was greatly feared among the prisoners because of his bestiality and tendency to arbitrary killing. In the later trial his personal photo album from the camp, "The Kurt Franz Album" was introduced, and above the pictures of a grab used for loading corpses onto pyres, mass graves he had inscribed "Schöne Zeiten" (roughly translated into "Good times").

In Auguist 1943, after the revolt Kurt Franz was made commandant of Treblinka and oversaw the last gassing operations and dismantling of the camp. Thereafter he was sent to Trieste in Italy along with much of the other Aktion Reinhard personnel.

After the war he lived in Düsseldorf under his own name, working as a construction worked until 1949 and from then on until his arrest in 1959 as a cook.

Kurt Franz was sentenced to life imprisonment at the first Treblinka Trial in 1965 for the killing of at least 139 inmates and complicity in the killing of at least 300,000 Jews.

Kurt Franz was released due to old age and health problems in mid-1993. He died July 4, 1998 in Wuppertal, Germany.

Ivan Marchenko. On other pages on this forum , it was proven that he was Ivan the Terrible, and he was not killed at Treblinka. Rather he disappeared in Fiume at the end of the war, according to Karl Frenzel, who was a nazi criminal at Sobibor.
