Hello

Bordeaux trial for Bilfinger and Retzek SS Hauptsturmf born 2/05/1906
sentence are correct.

Karl Deuschle 8/07/1905 SS Unterscharf with gestapo Lyon trial in absence
same place(Lyon) sentence : Death.
Karl Pflaum should be in the trial with SD Members like Heimann, Floreck and others
but his case was split from them.
Think his case was closed without sentence afterwards.
