Gestapo Muller, Heinrich Muller Head of the Gestapo {Section IV of the Reich Security

Headquarters} during WWII and Adolph Eichmann’s immediate superior, responsible for

implementing the final solution. The official SS document {Vorschlag} proposing him

for the Knights Cross to the War Merit Cross with Swords. This award was his final and

greatest recognition by Hitler for his service. The document is six pages, legal size, October

1944, date stamped by the SS Personnel Office when received {October 7th, 1944}, partially

printed, signed by Ernst Kaltenbrunner {“Dr. Kaltenbrunner”}, head of the Nazi secret

service, SS Obergruppenfuhrer and General of the Police, and Heinrich Himmler {HH},

Reichsfuhrer.

The document states his previous service and includes a lengthy two-page justification for

the award by Kaltenbrunner {his immediate superior}. It reads in part that Muller: “was

able, through years of hard work and unstinting personal application, to build up the present

day Secret State Police {Gestapo} into a powerful instrument of leadership…an instrument

which through its political stream of information will be provided about all attempted illegal

activities on the territory of the Reich….” “The politically and philosophically uniformly

oriented Secret State Police also deserves much of the credit for the rapid crushing, apprehension

and eradication of the traitors of July 20, 1944 and their following…”. Muller has

been cited by some historians for receiving this award for his ruthless conduct as head of the

July 20, 1944 “investigation” on the attempted assassination of Hitler. Both Kaltenbrunner

and Himmler sign the document in “Feldkommanostelle” {Field Command Post}. Muller

was officially awarded the KC on October 5, 1944. Muller was last seen on April 28, 1945 in

the Berlin Fuhrer headquarters. An extraordinary Third Reich document.
