[1.] Public Prosecution at the Provincial Court

Munich II.

To the State Ministry of Justice.

Munich, the 2 June 1933.

Subject: Deaths of prisoners in protective custody at the concentration camp of Dachau.

In accordance with my instructions, I had a lengthy discussion on the 1 June 1933 with the Police Commander Himmler in his office at the Police H.Q. Munich about the incident at the concentration camp Dachau, which I have already reported to the Ministry of Justice separately; in particular, I told him briefly, with the aid of the photographs from the investigation files, about the Schloss, Hausmann, Strauss and Nefzger cases of which he appeared to have been advised already. I pointed out that particularly the four abovementioned cases-in view of the result of the findings to date-offer good reason for cogent suspicion of serious punishable actions on the part of individual members of the camp guard and of camp officials, and that both the Public Prosecution and the Police authorities to whose knowledge these incidents have come are under the obligation, under the threat of heavy punishment, to carry out the criminal investigation of the abovementioned incidents without consideration for any persons whatsoever; I requested the Police Commander Himmler to assist me in this task as much as possible. I stated that I was arranging for a preliminary legal investigation to be proposed and carried out with regard to the four cases mentioned, and that I would apply for a legal warrant of arrest-because of the danger of things being hushed up—against the persons who were cogently suspected of punishable participation in these cases. I declared further that I would employ the only officials suitable for the further necessary investigations, namely, those of the Criminal Department of the Police H.Q. Munich.

At my request the Police Commander Himmler agreed to issue an order to the effect that no difficulties were to be put in the path of myself and the examining magistrate during the investi


gation in the camp of Dachau, and that all requested information was to be given; he also stated that he had naturally no objections to my other intentions regarding the investigation of the individual cases.

[2.] Public Prosecution at the Provincial Court, Munich II.

To the State Ministry of Justice,

Subject: Deaths at the concentration camp of Dachau.

Pursuant to telephone instructions, four dossiers of the Public Prosecution, Munich II, regarding the deaths at the concentration camp of Dachau of the prisoners Schloss, Hausmann, Dr. Strauss and Nefzgar, who were in protective custody, (G 851, 924, ff 33, G 866/33, G 927/33, G 928 ff/33) were sent to the State Ministry of Justice on 2.6.1933. Should the dossiers not be required at present, I would request the return of these files for the purpose of examining whether the decree of 2.8.1933 regarding the granting of immunity from punishment has to be applied.

Subject: Dispatch of prisoners in protective custody to the concentration camp Neuengamme.


Previous correspondence: none.

In order to prevent unnecessary transport detours, I request that in future only the concentration camp of Neuengamme be given as the destination of transports of prisoners in protective custody who are to be sent to the concentration camp of Neuengamme, and not the Regional State Police H.Q. Hamburg and such like, and that the form accompanying the transport be filled in accordingly. The passing of these transports through the Police prisons of the Subregional HQ. Hamburg is not practicable owing to the continuous crowding of these police prisons and in view
