Stroop in 1951 during his Polish conviction

Jürgen Stroop (26 September 1895 – 6 March 1952), born Josef Stroop, was an SS-officer who was in command during the repression of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943.

He is stated to be the author of the Stroop Report on the uprising which is sometimes cited as support for the politically correct view on the Holocaust. See the article on the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.

After World War II he was put on trial at the Dachau trials for his responsibility for summary executions of nine captured Allied airmen. He was sentenced to death. However, he had already been extradited Poland to be tried by the Communist government. He was executed in 1952.
