Niessner was born in Bethausen/Romania (not Betshausen). Unfortunately i do not have the place of birth of Reiss, Pelger and Süss except that - as ansata1976 wrote above - they were also from Romania.

This is not Thernes but SS-Rottenführer Theodor Schollen, or, as he was called in the german version of the Majdanek film: "Thermolen"
