The Schutzstaffel (SS)
The Schutzstaffel (SS) were the elite guard of the Third Reich. Formed in 1925 as a small bodyguard to protect Hitler. It remained in this capacity until Heinrich Himmler took charge in 1929. So under his jurisdiction it grew to an enormous organisation. Also It became very powerful. Its co-opted national police forces, Security, intelligence and business. Eventually the SS developed is own branch of the Wehrmacht, the Waffen SS (armed SS). From the beginning members were chosen for their physical and mental ability and also there character. Entry was from 21 years of age followed by 18 months probationary period. The SS eventually reflected Himmlers esoteric interests and encompassed quasi religious ceremonies and beliefs. From 1945 it was classed as a criminal organisation.
