Wilhelm Boger


Can you tell me the fate of the infamous sadist, Wilhelm Boger, of Auschwitz. He developed the toture device that became known as "The Boger Swing." I believe he was tried and convicted at an Auschwitz Trial in Germany, but I wonder what is fate was after his conviction. Thank You.

Gord McFee Responds:


I am one of the volunteers who answers these questions.

According to two sites on the Internet, Boger was sentenced to 5 lifesentences for his actions at Auschwitz. I can't find anything since,but presumably, he is either dead or still in prison.

Hope this helps.


Best Regards
