Thank You Puck but moykopf asked about Krim.Ob.Ass. Helmut Altmann (born 1902) from KdS Lublin not KK Hermann Altmann (born 1906) from KdS Radom.

Altmann was probably involved or directly responsible for the first two death marches of Jews from Hrubieszów and from Cholm to the Bug river in October and December 1939. Dieter Pohl mentions the first deportation in October. His source is Siemion Leszek, Egzekucje na Lubelszczyźnie, in: Zeszyty Majdanka (ZM) 3, 1969, pp. 154-203, p. 158. This is the same volume of "Zeszyty Majdanka" that George_W mentioned as source for Altmann heading the Grenzpolizeikommissariat (see above message on August 16.)

Thank you for replies and for the link which ill look into soon

Auschwitz sent me archives with his name as Fabig (Fabich, Fabisz) Bernhard Gethard, birthdate at 1913-03-10, Krag, locksmith as occupation and parents as Adam / Klara.

The details above match (i think....) all but his middle name Gerhard vs Constantine.

PTG Pomorskie has a listing for Krag UCS that matches but i need to order full birth certificate

I tried pasting images here but was unable

Thank you one again

David

I am interested in more information about

Paul Heinrich aka Alfred Müller, From 1940, Paul Heinrich was a permanent member of the SS staff of the camp in Oswiecim. He enjoyed the support of the camp commandant, Rudolf Hoess, by who’s efforts he obtained a higher position as ‘lagerfuhrer’ of the camp in Prudnik, where Poles were also interned. He distinguished himself by great cruelty and brutal treatment of Poles.

Jan Gretzinger (01.01.1908) sentenced to death in Lodz

Erwin Szulc or Schulz sentenced to death 1945 or 1946 in Warsaw (mistreated Poles imprisoned in Warsaw)

Bronislaw Bender(a) sentenced to death 1945 or 1946 in Warsaw (member of the SS, took an active part in armed actions against Polish partisans in the Zamojszczyzna region and brutal mistreated Polish farm workers)

According to SSO, Pomorin born 30 Oct 1893 in Puppen (not 31 Oct).
I have no postwar data for him

Walter Weiss, born 25 Feb 1910, Wültschkau, Krs Neumarkt (now Wilczkow/Poland); SS No. 342789; promoted SS-Ostuf 1 Sept 1939; PolObInspektor at Stapo Kattowitz, 1944
I am doing my genealogy. Wilhelm Pomorin is my great-grandfather. According to a marriage certificate, born on the 21st Oct 1893.

Do you have any other data/documents relating to his activities during the war?
