When was Anton Zita sentenced to death (in absentia) 1954? Was he sentenced alone?

SS-Oberscharführer Anton Zita (24.04.1909 in Göllerndorf), RSHA (Abt. IV B 4), deputy of Eichmann in Saloniki (died 16.06.1946 in Prague Pankrac prison)

Zita born Göllersdorf, Lower Austria.
Various published sources says Zita was a suicide in Prague.
Was he sentenced to death in 1945 (not 1954) or was it left hand and right hand at work?

Thank you Steve.



I am interested in details about the trials and men:

Wilhelm Berger (27.2.1911 in Wiesloch) sentenced to 5 years imprisonment
Willy Peter (16.11.1903 in Mulhouse) sentenced to death (in absence)

Heussel is not listed as an SS-officer so maybe a Gendarmerie officer (I do not collect their data).

The CROWCASS lists are not always accurate and reflect the information given to them (the UNWCC) by countries. France wanted these alleged war criminals and listed in a number of CROWCASS lists:
SS-Hstuf Dr Callinger, KdS Nancy, Abt IV, 1944: Callinger has no SSO.
Helmut Calow, Sipo Ast Blois, 1943-1944.
SS-Oschaf Heinz Caspar/Casper, KdS Toulouse, Nov 1942-Aug 1944.
Johannes Cevasko, KdS Paris, Abt IV, 1941-1944.
SS-Sturmmann Conrad, BdS Paris, then in Alsace, 1944.
Josef Conrady, driver, Sipo Ast Barens.
SS-Oschaf Corda (or Sorda), KdS Paris, Abt IV.

Any further information appreciated.
