In addition to the names in the published documents and other personal data: date and place of birth, personal identification number, years of service in Auschwitz, education, citizenship. In addition, in some dossiers there are photographs of overseers and the court cases against those who were found after the war. According to the compilers of the list, several of the defendants are still alive.
Most of the staff of concentration camps were Germans, however, apart from these overseers served the citizens of occupied or satellite States of the Third Reich — Romania, Slovakia and Hungary.
