Not to be glib, but I'd suspect Jo~zef's crime was being Polish.
I've not had any experience with the new info you're looking for but
perhaps the gmina would have records of this sort of thing or be able to
tell you where these might be. You can also check with the head office
of the Polish civil archives in Warsaw.
Congrats on this find though. This should encourage others to look for

I knew that one of my relatives was captured as part of the Polish
Resistance and sent to Auschwitz before he was transferred to
Mauthausen. I had copies of his paperwork when the camp was liberated,
so I contacted the Mauthausen Memorial Archives in Austria and received
copies of his personal card written in German, a transcription of the
card with English translations of key words, and the following summary
Does anyone know if the Germans kept records (I assume they did -- they
documented everything, it seems) that would include the initial
contact/arrest records? I would love to know what Jozef Cader did to get
him arrested in the first place.
