Military Wiki

Between 1925 and 1945, the German Schutzstaffel (SS) grew from a mere eight members to over a quarter of a million Waffen-SS and over a million Allgemeine-SS members. The following list of SS personnel gives the names of persons who are counted among the organization's most famous, influential, and notorious members.

Führer (Adolf Hitler)

Oberster SA-Führer and SS Member # 1 Adolf Hitler at SA Parade Nuremberg September 1935; SA at the left; SS man Jakob Grimminger behind car

Inspection by the Nazi party and Himmler at the Dachau concentration Camp on 8 May 1936.

Prior to 1934 the SS were nominally under the command of the Sturmabteilung[1] and so it could be said that both Adolf Hitler as Oberster SA-Führer and Ernst Röhm as Stabschef SA outranked the most senior SS position of Reichsführer-SS. Following the Night of the Long Knives Hitler "raised the SS, hitherto subordinate to the SA, to the rank of an independent organisation".[2] Hitler also was considered SS Member No. 1, Emil Maurice (considered the founder of the SS) was member No. 2, while Himmler was SS member #168. Based on the seniority system of SS membership number, this made Hitler senior in the SS to all other members even if not by rank.

After the Night of the Long Knives, when the SS became independent from the SA, Hitler was listed on SS officer rolls as member No. 1 and considered supreme commander of the entire SS by virtue of his position as the Führer of Germany. There is no photographic record of Hitler ever wearing an actual SS uniform nor was there a special SS insignia for Hitler above that worn by Himmler.

On 30 April 1945 after the evacuation of Brno garrison, Schauschütz was named the commander of Gestapo "Aussenstelle" (outer office) in Velke Mezirici in Moravia. His task was to help the military garrison secure the town which was on the important escape route of Heeresgruppe Mittte. There was a large uprising in the town on 6 May 1945. Schauschütz was among several German officers which conferred with the revolutionary group and assured it that no actions would be taken against the Czechs if they wouldn´t use weapons. The treaty was betrayed as Schauschütz informed neighboring garrisons and the town was retaken with probably 100 local men taken prisoner. On 7 May 1945, the execution of 60 civilian men took place. According to one of several versions, Schauschütz personally ordered the mass murder. Thereafter, Schauschütz made it to the U.S. zone and pretended to be a Wehrmacht officer coming back from the field hospital, possessing no personal ID. Later he had obtained counterfeit documents "proofing" he was a Heer member and sent to a POW camp where all the POWs were given over to the Russians; Schauschütz was identified as high ranking Gestapo officer. After a trial, he was hanged in 12 April 1947 in Brno.
