Treblinka, Poland, Kurt Franz (right) with his younger brother, a soldier in the Luftwaffe. From the private album of Kurt Franz from the time of his service as Deputy Commandant of Treblinka. The album was presented by the prosecution at Franz's trial in Dusseldorf during the years 1964-5.

Kurt Franz was a commanding officer at the Belzec and Treblinka death camps. One of the cruelest and most barbaric SS camp butchers, Franz would set his St Bernard dog on prisoners "for fun". At Treblinka, he was in charge of the transfer of prisoners directly to the gas chambers. His baby face belied his cruelty and vicious, sadistic nature. After the war he succeeded in evading capture until 1959. During trial in 1965 he denied all charges. He spent 28 years in prison and died in 1998.

Stangl and Kurt Franz - Treblinka

At the Treblinka Trials in 1965, Franz denied having ever killed a person, having ever set his dog on a Jew, and claimed to have only beaten a prisoner once.[16] On September 3, he was found guilty of collective murder of at least 300,000 people, 35 counts of murder involving at least 139 people, and for attempted murder. He was sentenced to life imprisonment. He was released in 1993 for health reasons. Kurt Franz died in Wuppertal in 1998.
