    Hi guys,

    Does anyone have more info on the three SS guards that were killed during the revolt on 7 Oct. 1944?
    I know they are listed as
    SS-Unterscharführer Rudolf Erler, (31.8.04 - 7.10.44), 5./SS-T-Stuba.KL Auschwitz I.

    SS-Unterscharführer Willi Freese, (30.9.21 - 7.10.44), 2./SS-T-Stuba.KL Auschwitz II

    SS-Unterscharführer Jozef Purke, (28.2.03 - 7.10.44). 1./SS-T-Stuba.KL Auschwitz II

    But can’t fund any more information on the three individuals.

    Any help would be great.

    They were random, who-cares nobodies (Freese = 1 Klasse der Volksschule), no different from millions of others, so only the most elementary information is available:
    Rudolf Erler, Willi Freese, Jozef Purke.
