Like Georg I don't have any info on Kinzel, Kohl or Wichert.
On Rieger I have him sentenced to death in Katowice May 1946 for the crime of denunciation in Chorzow.
Nothing more.

I check old Polish newspapers online (Gazeta Ludowa, Zycie Warsawska, Dziennik Lodzki …). It is a lot of work to check all this newspapers to find new names. Unfortunately sometimes the spellining of the names is not correct ( e.g. Hermann Tohner or Karol Zemler). For the date of birth I check this names with https://inwentarz.ipn.gov.pl/# But I need more information. I still wait for more information from the IPN in Warsaw. maybe the Bundesarchiv can help.

Unfortunately I cannot find more names of defendants sentenced to death in Piotrkow, Kalisz or Siedlce.

Which information do you have about:

Piotr Felisiak guard in Buchenwald Trial Ostrow 1948 death sentence
Jan Semrau 18.11.1889 member Selbstschutz, NSDAP in district Tczew death sentence 13.04.1946 in Torun
