Abstract

110 | The descriptions of the conditions of the labor camp, which became a concentration camp at the factory, are reminiscent of the numerous descriptions of other camps--sadistic guards, kapos, and commanders, barely enough food to survive, grueling work schedules. Again, the firstperson testimonies bring all this to life. The most difficult parts of the postwar analyses are Saidel's grim telling of the few Nazi war crimes trials. Only five trials of Nazis in Mielec took place, including the trials of the three concentration camp commanders. Gotthold Stein was sentenced to death and executed in 1951. Lorenz Landstorfer was sentenced to death in January 1948 and executed in October 1948. Josef Schwammberger escaped from a detention camp in January 1948 and fled to to Argentina, where he lived for almost 40 years. He was finally brought to trial in 1991­1992 and was found guilty in May 1992 of lesser charges. He died in December 2004 in a prison hospital at the age of 92. Saidel offers voluminous documentation of his crimes, yet he was not convicted for his bestial crimes in Mielec. There were also war crimes trials against two Volksdeutsch Gestapo agents.
