  1. Gestapo

    The Gestapo was the official secret police of Nazi Germany and German-occupied Europe. Hermann Göring first formed the unit in 1933. Beginning on 20 April 1934, it was under the administration of SS national leader, Heinrich Himmler who in 1936 was appointed Chief of German Police by Hitler. In 1936, Himmler made it a suboffice of the Sicherheitspolizei. Then from 27 September 1939 forward, it was administered by the Reichssicherheitshauptamt and was considered a sister organization of the Sicherheitsdienst. According to historian Rupert Butler, "From its creation in 1933 until its death in May 1945, anyone living in Nazi controlled territory lived in fear of a visit from the Gestapo...".

It is war and Germany is fighting for her existence. You are in the greatest danger and if you want to live another day must be very careful.

  3. Victor Kugler:

    I heard a commotion and opened the door to my office to see what was going on. I saw four police officers. One was wearing a Gestapo uniform. 'Who's in charge here?', he snapped at me. I answered that I was. 'Let me see the rest of the building!' I showed him all the spaces. Then we went upstairs and stood on the landing by the bookcase. My heart was pounding. The three Dutch policemen were already busy trying to open the bookcase. The moment I had feared for years had arrived. One of the police officers pointed his gun at me and ordered me to go first. The others followed behind, also with their pistols drawn. The first person I saw was Mrs Frank. I whispered 'Gestapo' to her. She sat completely still and seemed to be in shock. The others were coming downstairs from the other floors. Margot was very upset, she was crying softly.
