SS-OBERGRUPPENFÜHRER & GENERAL DER WAFFEN-SS AND POLICE
SS-Obergruppenführer und General der Waffen-SS und der Polizei Friedrich-Wilhelm Krüger (8 May 1894 – 10 May 1945) was a German Nazi war criminal, acting as a paramilitary commander, while being high-ranking member of the SA and the SS. Between 1939 and 1943 he was the Higher SS and Police Leader in the Generalgouvernment, giving him command of all police and security forces in German-occupied Poland. In this capacity, he organized and supervised numerous acts of crimes against humanity (such as being in charge of the concentration camps, overseeing the suppression of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, mass executions, partisan hunts, etc.) and had a major responsibility for the German genocide on the Polish nation, especially Jews, and massive destruction, deterioration and impoverishment of the Polish state. In October of 1944 he was awarded the Knights Cross. At the end of the war, he committed suicide while in American captivity.
The DIN A4 document (roughly 8 x 10 inch), dated 18 May 1942 deals about the transfer of a SS-Untersturmführer Paul Eilers who requested to be transferred from the Volksdeutsche Mittelstelle to the see service in the Generalgouvernement and Krüger was in favor of it.
