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. Under his jurisdiction  it  grew  to an enormous organisation co-opting  national police forces, Security, intelligence and business. Eventually  the SS developed is  own branch  of  the Wehrmacht, the  Waffen SS (armed  SS). So 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.
