    Default Gestapo Chief Buried In Jewish Cemetary.

    The head of Hitler's Gestapo secret police and one of the organisers of the Holocaust, Heinrich Mueller, was buried in a Jewish cemetery in Berlin in 1945, a German newspaper reported Thursday.

    For 68 years, the fate of "Gestapo-Mueller" has been unclear but German newspaper Bild, based on documents found by a historian, said he died at the end of the war and was buried in a common grave in a Jewish cemetery in central Berlin.
    The leader of Germany's Jewish community, Dieter Graumann, reacted angrily.
    "That one of the most brutal Nazi sadists is buried in a Jewish cemetery is a distasteful monstrosity. The memory of the victims is being treated here with contempt,"

    Finding his body will be very difficult,though there will be calls for a search and an exhumation to remove the gestapo chiefs body.

    Cast a cold eye on life, on death. Horsemen pass by.

    BBC can't let a week go by without a Nazi related story on the website.

    Thought that this one was enough for now, but the more the merrier.

    Terrible stuff, but a scene from the Life of Brian immediately sprung to mind.

    There has been speculation about what happened to Mueller for decades. He was born in 1900 so we can safely say he is long dead by now even if somehow he escaped from Berlin.
    One of his last acts as Gestapo chief was to oversee the trial of Himmler's adjutant SS-Gruppenfuhrer Herman Fegelein who was married to Eva Braun's sister and therefore the Fuhrer's brother in law. He was last seen in the Fuhrerbunker in Berlin on May 1st 1945.
    He either committed suicide Josef Goebbels or Generals Krebs and Burgtof or was killed by the Soviets along with Martin Borman and others as he joined the breakout by the remains of the Berlin.
    If he did make it out he probably headed for South America and lived in anonymity for the rest of his life.
    We will probably never know for sure.

    Andreas Nachama, head of the Topography of Terror archive and memorial, located at the site of the former Gestapo headquarters in Berlin,said it brings closure to the question of what happened to the Gestapo chief.
    He also went on to say,
    “It is grotesque that he is buried there, but it was not an anti-Jewish measure,” noting that any human remains found in the area were buried together.

    Nachama, who is a practicing rabbi and former head of the Berlin Jewish community, had suggested back in the late 1990s moving the contents of the mass grave out of the Jewish cemetery, but this was rejected on halachic, or Jewish legal grounds due to the likelihood that historic Jewish graves might be disturbed.

    Until they find his body they can't be sure this isn't an elaborate hoax. As Gestapo head he would have been in a perfect position to orchestrate all this.
