Maier was SD and I don't think he was "Gestapo Strasbourg and KL Schirmeck" as he was Leiter, SD-Ast Mulhouse, 1940-1943 and then persönlicher Referent of BdS Elsass.

Hans Orstadt
born 26 April 1906, Worms (twinned with St Albans - a mistake, should have been Trier)
SS-Stuschaf KS

Christian Sachs
born 3 Aug 1903, Lehrfeld, Krs Augsburg
20 April 1938, SS-Ostuf
Ks to KOS and KK in 1944

Hermann Schmelz
born 2 Dec 1897 (no POB)
SS-Stuschaf KS

Were members of Sipo-SD in Bayonne, Toulon, d'Angoulême, Digne, Charleville or d'Avignon sentenced after the war in France (or in absentia)?

I am interested in more information regarding the following trial (Gestapo Amiens ) :

Trial 20.10.1949 in Metz
Adolf Höfig (?) sentenced to death (in absentia)
SS-Unterscharführer Heinz Braumann (22.11.1901 in Bochum) sentenced to death (in absentia)
Were there more accused in the trial? What was the SS rank of Adolf Höfig?

Was Kriminalrat Günther Artur Herbert Sadzik (01.09.1907 in Cosel/Oberschlesien) sentenced to 6 years imprisonment 28.07.1953 in Paris , the only defendant in his trial?

Was SS-Rottenführer Heinrich Grelack (15.08.1890 in Oberrad) sentenced to death 02.07.1954 in Metz (in absentia), staff Natzweiler, the only defendant in his trial?

I am as well interested in more information about:
Martin Walter Buschmann (14.12.1908 in Günthersdorf/Bunzlau) sentenced to death in Metz (in absentia) When and where was the trial? Why was he sentenced?

Hans M-K was Staffel-Schaf and driver; I believe he comes from Bremen as that's where he went at the end of the war and where he lived postwar. I have nothing to show he was extradited from the British Zone to France.
Was he tried in absentia?

Incidentally, RSHA BBL 4/44 lists him with two FF

Walter Kley was later commissioned SS-Ustuf (in 1945) and DOB given as 27 July 1916 (no POB)

I think Johann Hintermayer should be Hans Hintermeier (Uniformtraeger Ustuf)
