This is the CIA search site for declassified records https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/advanced-search-view
I did not get any hits on his name. You may have to do a FIOA (Freedom of Information Act) request in case the records are still classified. There is also the possibility that he worked for another US intelligence agency in Germany after WWII.
I might do that, thanks!
Do you know what kind of document is this? The translator says that it's "a community of unlawful foreigners". I assume this document originates from Nazi Germany, so it might be a list of people taken for forced labour.

Would this be anyone you may know birth date is the same. Please copy and paste link into web browser.
I doubt it. He died on 4-th of October 1999 somewhere in Germany. Maybe near Oberhausen - I've found this document with his name on it:
However I'm not 100% sure if this is him.

If it helps a translation of the line:
The Registration of Foreigners and German Persecutees states:
Marian Rozalski was born Dec 9, 1926 at Kleindorf,
in Jan 12, 1944 he lived in an unknown town in the Kries Ostrowo (the R is missing but see 3 entries above )
He worked for Zitzlsberger & Kuttenhammer (Ruttenhammer), Rudertg
he left April 30, 1945 to his homeland.
I see in another coinciding record that this is a woman, not a man born Dec 9, 1926.
I have a couple of questions. Did he have a social security number? You might be able to see if he has a federal government employment file. Have you checked for an FBI file? Some of the records have been declassified from the 1960's. Do you have a copy of his death certificate?
Washington State Archives
So maybe this is a different person. My grandfather's brother was born on 8-th of December 1924. The person in this document might be Maria Rozalski (a woman).
Unfortunately I don't have any kind of social security number. He was deprived of polish citizenship by the communist state - probably because of his actions for CIA. I don't have his death certificate. Only know about his date of death (4-th of October 1999). He died somewhere in West Germany. I didn't check FBI archives either.
I called a polish institute that handles such archives (it's called IPN) today and they've given me interesting info - namely that he was sentenced to prison in Hamburg (Germany) in 1949 for 5 years for illegal trade and that his cover name (as a polish agent) was "Moryc". So he's a double agent now (???). If he was deprived of polish citizenship, he might have been considered a traitor (treason of communist state would be considered as a heroic act in nowadays Poland). A historian from IPN also told me that he should be mentioned in German archives, but for a regular person like me it's almost impossible to get any such information from them.
Here are some photos of him:
Marian Rozalski in Paris - second half of 1940-ties.
A document photo - 1950-ties I think.
Marian Rozalski as a young boy and by the end of his life.
Maybe they could be of some help. Thanks for your help guys. I really appreciate it!

Dear Mr. Rozalski,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The Central Intelligence Agency maintains an online Freedom of Information Act Electronic Reading Room. Information concerning the CIA Records Search Tool (CREST) is provided on the CIA web site at CREST: 25-Year Program Archive. CREST does not include personnel files or sources and methods files. If the information you seek is not available through these sources, you may file a Freedom of Information Act request with the CIA. Instructions for doing so are at How to File a FOIA Request.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
