SS and Police Units Implicated in War Crimes

SS and Police Units Implicated in War Crimes

As an aid to researchers, this is the fourth in a series of "stickys" which will group war crimes allegations by unit or administrative office. This "sticky" will deal with SS and Police units implicated in war crimes.

The JuNSV website lists West German war crimes trials by the defendants' unit or agency in German at:

http://www1.jur.uva.nl/junsv/brd/Dienstdeufr.htm

and in English [partial translations only] at:

http://www1.jur.uva.nl/junsv/brd/Dienstengfr.htm

The East German war crimes trials are organized the same way. They may be found at:

http://www1.jur.uva.nl/junsv/ddr/ddrdienststfr.htm

This allows one to view the SS and Police units whose members were tried in postwar German courts for war crimes. Off to the side of the unit are the case numbers of the trials involving that unit. One only has to click on the case number to get the details on the case. For all German trials, here's the list of SS and Police units:

If you have any facts about warcrimes associated with SS & Polizei units (trails, accusations in books etc), please post that info in this thread along with a source.

But please, this is a thread to post facts only, if you want to discuss anything mentioned in this thread, please start a new one to discuss it, thanks.

Here is a list of German police battalions said to be involved in massacres of one thousand persons or more, taken from Daniel Jonah Goldhagen's "Hitler's Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust," Alfred A. Knopf, New York: 1996, pp. 271-73:

Thanks David, interesting as always. Just one question, what does "(R&R: Life Sentence)" mean?

"(R&R: Life Sentence)" means that the sentence of death originally passed on the accused at the military commission trial was modified to a term of life imprisonment. R&R is the US Army Judge Advocate's abbreviation for "Review and Recommendations." Back in 1945-1948, the Judge Advocate's staff reviewed all of the war crimes trials held by US military commissions. All war crimes sentences had to be approved by the area military commander, and the Judge Advocate's R&R was to assist the commander in confirming or modifying the sentences.

David you wrote
This allows one to view the SS and Police units whose members were tried in postwar German courts for war crimes. Off to the side of the unit are the case numbers of the trials involving that unit. One only has to click on the case number to get the details on the case. For all German trials, here's the list of SS and Police units:
David can I ask about the units which you listed, and more so to clarify a question I have regarding the units you listed under the quote heading...
My Question is...Are the units you listed denote units where individuals have committed war crimes? or are these units themselves were to be found guilty of war crimes and thus any member whom served in the above mentioned units perhaps likewise deemed to be a war criminal?

Thanks

The list includes for example regular KriPo-units (responsible for solving regular crimes, see http://www.axishistory.com/index.php?id=9484) so the list includes unit where one or more member has been tried in German courts post-war.
In some cases the units were declared criminal (most SS units for example) but that does not mean all the members were declared criminal.
