I only know that in early 1944 Häle and Grajewski were members of Referat IV 1 (opposition - Polish underground, Grajewski in IV 1 a - communist underground, left-wing opposition) and Grodek was member of Referat IV 2 (sabotage) in KdS Lublin.

Wilhelm Schnabel did light up a wood wool factory. Schnabel addmited his guilt, was sentenced to death but due to amnesty he got 15 years prison instead.

Władysław Bissinger [also Bissingier/Bisyngier, source: http://inwentarz.ipn.gov.pl/advancedSea ... rcaId=4204] was sent as 20 year old young man to a forced labor camp in Braunschweig. There, on the costs of his fellows, he traded off his situation to the Gendarmerie and Gestapo by denouncing them when they bought bread on the open market. He admited 8-9 cases but the fellow witnesses stated that 55 Poles suffered because of his acts. Got sentenced to death.

But surprisingly I found a man with exact this name here:

Wladyslaw Bissinger
26.11.1922 in ?
Kapo in KL Buchenwald Kd. Braunschweig
sentenced to death 06.02.1947 in Lodz (commuted to 5 years imprisonment 17.11.1947, released 01.09.1951)

Buchtala, Golchert, Juckniehs, Stuck, Szczepanski (or Szepanski) and Tuschinski were sentenced in Warsaw on the same day (23/06/1948).
They were all extradited to Poland by the US authorities on 25/02/1947.

Herbert Buchtala, born 28/05/1913, member of the SS (SS-Hauptscharführer) in Germany and Russia, probably also the guard in KL Oranienburg or KL Sachsenhausen, sentenced to 3 years in Warsaw, released on 16/01/1951.
