Gottlob Berger

Gottlob Berger
Gottlob Berger was Chief of Staff for the military SS and head of the SS main leadership.

Gottlob Berger (July 16, 1896 - January 5, 1975) was a German general during World War II. From 1940, he was Chief of Staff for the military SS and head of the SS main leadership office.

He was a coauthor of Heinrich Himmler's pamphlet Der Untermensch, and also promoted the pamphlet Mit Schwert und Wiege (With Sword and Cradle) for the recruitment of non-Germans. He was the father-in-law of SS-Sturmbannführer Karl Leib, the head of the Norwegian recruitment office at Drammensveien, Oslo.

After the war, he was arrested and put on trial in the Ministries Trial in 1947. He was convicted in 1949 for his role in the Genocide of European Jews and sentenced to 25 years in prison. The sentence was reduced to 10 years in 1951 because of his refusal to kill the Prominente in Oflag IV-C, despite direct orders from Adolf Hitler.
