Has anyone got any rare pictures of the Treblinka staff, Kurt Franz, Stangl and Miete etc and also death dates for them?

Stangl died in prison 28 Jun 1971 (NYT 29 Jun 1971:40:4). Wikipedia gives Franz's death date as 4 Jul 1998 in Wuppertal. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_Franz

Cheers Dave!

I have the following dates:

Willi Mentz - D.O.B 30/04/1908 - 25/07/1978.
Franz Suchomel - D.O.B 03/12/1907 - 18/12/1979.
Erwin Lambert - D.O.B 07/12/1907 - 15/10/1976.
Otto Stadie - D.O.B 10/03/1897 - 28/07/1977.
Albert Rum - D.O.B 08/06/1890 - 1970.

Some were out of prison well before the sentences expired.

I can't find any for Miete and Matthes etc if anyone else knows and where?

Eddy thats brilliant just the kind of thing I was looking for many thanks!

You dont know anything about their behaviour in court? I mean did they blame each other, Franz etc?

Thanks again.

Sorry Trespasser07, but I don't have any info relative to their conduct in Court. From what I gather, responsibility was cast, as much as possible, onto SS-Hauptsturmführer Christian Wirth, as the driving force behind the murders but also as a real peril in case of non compliance...

Here's a pic of Kurt Franz at home, a couple of years before his death

Thanks Eddy!

Yeah thats whats i assumed also because of the fear of Wirth perfect man to drive the genocide forward i guess. You dont know where and when Matthes/Miete died do you?

Hi Trespasser07;

Miete was held in Dusseldorf-Derendorf prison from 27th May 1960. Tried in the 1st Treblinka trial in 1965; he was sentenced to life imprisonment, and died in prison - but I don't have the date of his death.

Matthes was sentenced to life imprisonment also, but I have no details about his death (date and circumstances) either.

Sorry :roll:
