Richard Baer

Kommandant at Auschwitz (1944-1945) and Dora (1945.)  Baer served in the SS Totenkopf Division in 1942.  At least 1,000,000 persons died at Auschwitz; about 20,000 perished at Dora.  He died while in detention at trial in Frankfurt, Germany on June 17, 1963, having avoided prosecution for many years due to a false identity of Karl Neumann.
