the corruption of Koch and wife was exposed by SS-Hstuf Dr. Konrad Morgen during his investigation, resulted in death sentence. Koch was deposed as commandant and Florstedt brought in from Buchenwald where he had been Koch's junior. Florstedt had also been Frau Koch's lover at Buchenwald and they re-commenced their affair briefly.

A very interesting listing, Jared. Only a few minor incorrectnesses, eg. "Lipce" is a township of Gdansk, many "ranks" are in reality a function which they executed and not an SS-rank itself.

Thank you history1. I've actually been working on making a listing of every SS-Aufseherinnen, and these are just the women from Majdanek-Lublin I looked up in my notes. And as for the mistakes, well; we all make them. Let me know if you require any additional data on any of the Aufseherinnen; I'll see what I can find.
