Not sure if this has been posted before, but here are photos of Germans extradited to Poland for trials.

Increase the size and press show more info for Polish and English descriptions.

Interestingly, they received fair trials in then communist Poland unlike the non-communist Polish soldiers "tried", tortured, and often executed and dumped in unmarked pits.

Anna Bulion
22.10.1885
Gestapo agent
sentenced to death 12.09.1945 in Inowroclaw
executed 16.08.1946 in Inowroclaw
According to a history of the prison in Inowrocław:

http://inowroclawfakty.pl/historia-inow ... %99zienia/

Anna Bulion was executed on 10 August 1946, not 16 August. I do not know which date is correct.
