hello!

for my masterthesis i am searching for french post-war-trials concerning the concentration camp Mauthausen (including sub-camps). i have already found some of those cases (Hans Bühner, Georg Finkenzeller, Anton Hefner, Johann Gärtner) ... but it is very difficult to get any information from french archives. do you have any additional information concerning this matter?

my regards,
