Majdanek, among the most deadly of concentration camps, was set up to enact the "Final Solution" to the "Jewish problem".

Below is a list of the S.S. men and women at the
Majdanek Concentration Camp and in Lublin, Poland where
Majdanek was located. Those who died prior to 1950 have a notation after their name with their cause of death.
Those without any comment below survived without receiving any significant punishment for their crimes.
This site also has data on Nazis at Belzec, Sobibor, and smaller camps like Poniatowa and Dorohucza.

This remains an incomplete listing. According to "Auschwitz" by Aleksander Lasik, there were
6,800 S.S. men and 200 S.S. women who served at Majdanek between 1940 and 1945. There
were 4,4481 S.S. men and 71 S.S. women upon liquidation of the Majdanek camp.

Those below followed by an asterisk (*) are still missing today.

Please contact us if you have any added information.

Hans Frank became the Nazi's supreme administrative authority in the Lublin district. Each area in Lublin district had its own district
chief (later called Gouverneur), in charge of their jurisdiction. Frank's administration had 12 governmental departments, each headed
by a civil servant. Large cities were ruled by a mayor (Stadthauptmann). District chief of Lublin Ernst Zoerner eventually grew the
German administration in Lublin district to more than 700 Nazis. On 9 November 1939, Heinrich Himmler appointed Odilo Globocnik the
S.S. and Police Leader in the Lublin district of the General Government territory. At a two hour meeting with Himmler on 13 October
1941, Globocnik received verbal approval to start construction work on the Belzec extermination camp, the first of its kind. Globocnik
continued in his position, the chief exterminator of the Jews, until August 1943, when he was succeeded by Jakob Sporrenberg. In
November, 1943, Sporrenberg and F. Wilhelm Krueger organized the Operation "Harvest Festival" (Aktion Erntefest), which effectively
removed almost all Jews from the Lublin district via mass extermination. The ten counties of the district were: Lublin (Land), Pulawy,
Radzyn, Biala Podlaska, Chelm, Hrubieszow, Zamosc, Bilgoraj, Janow Lubelski, and Krasnystaw. Lublin and Chelm had German
mayors appointed. Those with a ~ symbol after their name are confirmed as participating in Aktion Erntefest, the murders of
more than 43,000 Jews on Nov. 3-4, 1943. This action was ordered as revenge for the Jewish escapes from Treblinka and Sobibor.

Gendarmerie Battalion Gresser and Schwieger

Throughout 1944 within the Lublin district, Gendarmerie group Gresser -- which included the Gendarmerie groups
led by Kurt Wuttke (group 1) and Karl Rogall (group 2) and the Polizei regiment 25 (see below for information on their
leadership) -- took actions against Jews and partisans in the area. They were led by Erwin Gresser (born 1891), and after that
by Erich Swieger (born 1900, killed Oct. 14, 1944).

Police Battalion 101

Police Battalion 101 supervising women undressing. Unknown location during the Shoah.

Police Battalion 101 had significant activity in the Lublin district, including on Nov. 3-4, 1943 in which
43,000 Jews were murdered from Majdanek and its sub-camps. Few of the participants were ever
punished for their crimes.

(Suspected of participation in the shootings of 26,000 Jews in Lublin)

Dirlewanger Nazi Brigade

The leaders of the Reich Security Head Office decided to make Lublin a reservation for all of the Jews of Germany and occupied Europe.
The question of territorial control was of crucial importance according to the Hitlerists. Thus, the Dirlwanger group was brought in
from Berlin to secure the area for the Germans. The Dirlewanger unit had at first been formed out of poachers and criminals. There's
a book about the brigade entitled "The History of the Black Hunters" by Ingrao. The group carried out the murders of Jews in the Lublin
district, as with those listed elsewhere on this page. The below persons are just a small number of the total brigade, which numbered
7,500 fighters at its highest.

S.S. in Jozefow

The Hamburg Reserve Police Battalion 101 participated in the mass extermination of Jozefow's Jewish
community. The battalion departed Hamburg on 21.06.1942 with a total of 11 officers, 5 administrators,
and 486 men, i.e. a total of 502 men. The battalion was divided into a battalion staff and three companies.
The battalion was led by Major Wilhelm Trapp. Two of the companies were commanded by captains, the third
by a lieutenant. In addition to the small company staffs, each company was composed of three platoons. Generally,
two of the three platoons were led by lieutenants and the third by a non-commissioned officer. The platoons
were further divided into groups of about ten men, with a non-commissioned officer in charge. The battalion
was lightly armed, having only four machine guns per company to augment the rifles that its men carried. The
battalion had its own transport, which included trucks and, for conducting patrols, bicycles. Among those who partook:

Commander: Major Wilhelm "Papa" Trapp
Adjutant Lieutenant Haalck
1st Company: Captain Julius Wohlauf (until October 1942, then Captain Steidtmann)
1st Platoon: Second Lieutenant Boysen
2nd Platoon: Second Lieutenant (Reserve) Bumann
3rd Platoon: Zugwachmeister Junge
2nd Company: Lieutenant Hartwig Gnade (until May 1943, then Lieutenant Dreyer)
1st Platoon: Second Lieutenant Schürer
2nd Platoon: Second Lieutenant (Reserve) Kurt Dreyer
3rd Platoon: Hauptwachmeister Starke
3rd Company: Captain Wolfgang Hoffmann (until November 1942)
1st Platoon: Second Lieutenant Pauly
2nd Platoon: Second Lieutenant Hachmeister
3rd Platoon: Hauptwachmeister Juckmann

In 1968 the Hamburg District Court (Landgericht Hamburg) established the following in reference to the entire
battalion's first action in the Jozefow area: "The battalion commander Major Wilhelm Trapp addressed the
battalion. He explained the mission to the men. He made it plain that all Jews in the town were to be shot. He
told the men to think of their women and children at home who had to endure aerial bombardment, many of whom
would lose their lives. At the end of his address, Trapp announced that those elder members of the battalion
who did not feel up to the mission should step forward. Around 11 troops did step forward.

The evacuation commandos of the 1st and 2nd companies had the mission of driving together all the
inhabitants of the Jewish quarter, who could walk, into the market square. The uniformed police
(Schutzpolizei) forced their way into, and searched the houses. The Jews were collected from the
unloading point by the execution commandos. Each individual rifleman picked a new victim from the row of
waiting victims and accompanied him to the place of execution. There, the Jews had to lie down facing
the ground. They were killed with a rifle shot in the back of the head. The mission was completed by the
late afternoon. The Hamburg court found that the killings in Jozefow were carried out willingly and
consciously in that each rifleman sought out and killed his own victim.
