I believe that you already have all of them:

Jopke, Nowack, Otto, Naporra, Heller, probably Milke (all from Gestapo Warszawa), Pereutka, Laubner (Częstochowa and Radom), Kwast, Blaude, Mazurkiewicz (Kraków and Zakopane), Lell, Grodek, Grajewski, Häle, Wilupski or Wylupski (Lublin), Wilhelm, Stieff, Gampe (Radom), Drzyzga (Jasło), Winkler, Fikus, Szabelski, Press (Częstochowa), Schmatzler (Krosno), Kastura (Tarnów), Stielau (Jarocin and Poznań), Günzschel (Katowice and Bielsko), Fink (Poznań), Zukriegel (Łódź). I’m pretty sure that this list may be not complete.

Robert Muhl, born 28/10/1912, guard (staff member) in few camps in Germany (where?), extradited from US zone to Poland on 25/02/1947, sentenced in Warszawa on 04/12/1948 to 3 years, released on 15/03/1949.

Wilhelm Osthof, no info, he was not extradited from Germany.

Boger was extradited from US zone to Poland on 22/11/1946 but escaped from a transport on 23/11/1946 and wasn't caught again. So he wasn't tried in Poland, he was tried in West Germany.
