ADOLF HITLER (1889 - 1945) Fuhrer of Germany and Nazi Party leader, Hitler's bloody rise to power, his military seizure of most of Europe and North Africa and his genocidal racial policies culminated in suicide in his Berlin bunker as Russian troops approached. Rare partly-printed D.S., 1p. folio, “Fuhrer Headquarters”, May 5, 1944, the appointment of Karl Danner to serve as “Kriminalinspektor” in the SS, expressing Hitler’s trust in the man and his abilities and at the same time offering his own special protection”. Co-signed by HEINRICH HIMMLER (1900-1945) at lower right. Both signatures are fine and bold, with large blind-embossed seal. The document bears four file holes at center with a horizontal fold, and some toned spots and soiling, still overall very good. Such promotions are rarely seen. KARL DANNER achieved the rank of SS-Obersturnfuhrer in the Reichssicherheitsdienst (RSD, lit. "Reich security service"). Originally bodyguards for Adolf Hitler, it later provided men for the protection of other high-ranking leaders of the Nazi regime. Its role also included personal security, investigation of assassination plots, surveillance of locations before the arrival of Nazi dignitaries and vetting buildings as well as guests. Specifically, Danner served under FRIEDRICH SCHMIDT (1902-1973), Deputy Gauleiter in Lodz until the end of October 1939, then serving as SS district chief in Lublin.
