Hi Schmauser

I read some where that Richard Baer was camp commanndant or adj. commandant for camp III. I might be thinking of some else or another camp. But I am pretty sure. I will check my files.
Best Regards

Rudolf Höss

Post by Schmauser » 24 May 2002 11:45

Rudolf Höss


Rudolf Höss was born in Germany in 1900. He joined the German Army at the age of seventeen and in the First World War won the Iron Cross for bravery.
After the war he joined the Rossbach Freikorps where he fought with Martin Bormann. In 1922 Höss joined the National Socialist German Workers Party (N.S.D.A.P) but two years later he & Bormann were both jailed for murdering a man in the French-occupied Ruhr.
Released in 1928, Höss joined the SS in 1934. Höss worked in the concentration camp in Dachau before being appointed as adjutant to the commander of Sachsenhausen in 1938. Two years later, in May 1940, he became commander of Auschwitz in occupied Poland.
In June, 1941, Heinrich Himmler ordered that Auschwitz be greatly increased in size and the following year it became an extermination camp. Bathhouses disguised as gas chambers were added. Höss introduced Zyklon-B gas, that enabled the Nazis to kill 2,000 people at a time.
Hoess was promoted to Deputy Inspector General and took charge of the W.V.H.A department that administered German concentration camps.
When Germany surrendered in May, 1945, Höss managed to avoid capture and worked on a farm. He was eventually captured and at his trial admitted that around 3,000,000 people were killed at Auschwitz. Rudolf Höss was found guilty of war crimes and executed at Auschwitz on 15th April, 1947. His autobiography, Commandant of Auschwitz, was published in 1951.

Anymore info anyone?
