Notes
Walther Friedrich Schellenberg (16 January 1910 – 31 March 1952) rose through the nazi ranks to become a brigadefuhrer (SS General) by the end of the war. Schellenberg was the author of the 'Black book GB' which detailed those to be arrested on a successful nazi invasion in 1940. In November 1939 Schellenberg played a major part in the Venlo Incident, which led to the capture of two British agents, Captain Sigismund Payne-Best and Major Richard Stevens. Hitler awarded Schellenberg the Iron Cross for his actions.In 1940 he was also sent to Portugal to intercept the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and try to persuade them to work for Germany. The mission was a failure; Schellenberg managed only to delay their baggage for a few hours. In March 1942, Heinz Jost was fired from his position as RSHA Chief of Amt VI, SD-Ausland (SD foreign intelligence) & in his place, Schellenberg was appointed chief of SD-Ausland by Heydrich. the overall head of the entire security apparatus of the Nazi regime. According to his later memoirs, Schellenberg had been a friend of Wilhelm Canaris, the head of the Abwehr (military intelligence). However in 1944, the sections of the Abwehr were incorporated into RSHA Amt VI SD-Ausland and therefore placed under Schellenberg's command. Schellenberg was in Denmark attempting to arrange his own surrender when the British took him into custody in June 1945; the American, British, and Russian intelligence services had all been searching for him as a valuable intelligence asset.He was a witness in the Nuremburg trials but not convicted himself and released due to ill health & died of cancer in Turin in 1952. Ernst Schambacher Born 1899 in Berlin, Died 18 May 1945 in Houska , Czechoslovakia ) There are also reports he managed to escape from Czechosolovakia and whilst on the run he committed suicide.

SS Major & Administrative Councillor Roth
Notes
Erich Roth (born 25 May 1910 in Auschwitz – executed in 1947 in Yugoslavia)After a short stint with the district court, Roth worked as an assessor for the Gestapo in Berlin starting in February 1938. After the war began, he worked in the occupation administration in the General Government in Poland starting in October 1939. Later he took over the office groups IV B1 and IV B2 (church affairs) in the newly formed SS-Reichssicherheitshauptamt (RSHA; Reich Main Security Office). In February 1943, Roth was head of the Gestapo office in Dortmund. In late 1944, it was proposed that Roth should be a special representative to the Reichskommissar für die Festigung deutschen Volkstums (Reich Commissioner for the Consolidation of German Nationhood) in Oslo, Norway. The RSHA declined the offer, as Roth could not be "released from his current position without endangering the security police affairs under any circumstances with respect to the current overall situation in the West."He was captured by French occupation forces after the war and extradited to Yugolsavia where he was tried for war crimes and executed by hanging.
