Small correction : there were two men named "Willi Junge" extradited by the US authorities to Poland:

Willi Junge, born 04.12.1910, Police officer and member of Gendarmerie (or rather Schupo, not Gestapo) in Warsaw, extradited from US zone on 04.09.1946, sentenced in Warsaw on 23.05.1949 to 10 years, released on 23.12.1954.

Willi Junge, born 02.10.1906 in Sondershausen was different man: Willi Leopold Günther Junge, SS-Hscharf, Krim.Ob.Assistent and member of Gestapo in Krakau, Jasło, and Krosno (KdS Krakau), extradited from US zone on 03.02.1947, sentenced in Kraków to 10 years, died in prison on 15.11.1949.
