Poland publishes the names of SS Auschwitz

Poland has a database made accessible with the names of around 8500 SS that in the former German Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp have been working.

The list, including photographs and judicial judgments against the SS officers after the war, is on the web. That has the office of the Polish National Remembrance (IPN) in Krakow announced Monday.

It is going to be the so far largest registry of its kind. It was created in collaboration with a researcher Aleksander Lasik of the university of Bydgoszcz, said IPN-president, Jaroslaw Szarek. In the long term, yet data from other German extermination camps to be added.

Szarek described the project as a response to the historically erroneous phrase “Polish concentration camp’. “We show the occupation and let see who is that SS-men were.” In Auschwitz and Birkenau during the Second world War, certainly 1.1 million people were murdered.
