(Technically, his family name was Oelhafen v. Schoellenbach, as well)
Oberst Krafft von Oelhafen was Kdr Verbindungsstab 806 (Foix) on 1944.

I am interested in more information about the trial and fate (date of death) of:

In Rastatt, in the French zone,August Brucker(* 23.08.1921 in Dracsani) was sentenced to death 1950 by a French tribunal for murdering and mistreating Jewish and Polish prisoners in the Ascherleben concentration camp.

Franz Reimeringer 23.11.1910 in Dreibrunnen, sentenced to death in absentia in 1949. arrested in 60's at Paris Airport

Joseph Munck was sentenced to death 1949 by a French military court on charges of wartime treason.

Pinkus Chmielnicki, a Jew, was sentenced to death April 1950 in Paris (Reuilly) on charges of torturing prisoners in his charge in the Birkenau concentration camp. Several witnesses who testified at the trial before a military tribunal here said that the defendant had killed a number of Jews.
date of birth and execution?

A special court 26.04.1945 in Paris sentenced to death Silvain Baur, a Jewish at the Drancy concentration camp, who helped the Gestapo and the Vichy militia arrest and loot Jews. Baur is alleged, in this manner, to have made 100,000 frances monthly, which was supplemented, from time to time, by fees of 500,000 frances, each, which he received for promising to arrange the liberation of internees. In all cases, however, the victims paid their money and were then deported. date of birth and execution ?

Alfred Koch

Oblt. Fhr. 2./le. Flak-Abt. 71

this is a similar case with the trial of Otto Prottel in Rastatt.
Otto Prottel shot and killed the young polish girl named Pelagia Marczak , when she escaped from a farm where she worked.
