About the book Gestapo Free: The Story Behind Hitler’s Machine of Terror:
The Gestapo is depicted in movies and TV shows as men in black leather raincoats who would knock on doors the night before and arrest anyone who dared to threaten the Third Reich. However, who knows exactly who made up the members of the Gestapo? What role did they play in the Nazi Party, and why and how were they so influential, powerful, and terrifying?
The legend of this organization has a much better image than its natural face. Although the members of the Gestapo were answerable only to themselves and their direct supervisor, their duties and tasks were not separate from each other. They had standard instructions from the Security Organization or SD. The mission of the intelligence organization SD or SS was to protect Hitler. Unsurprisingly, the SS and the Gestapo often needed clarification because these two organizations cooperated a lot.
The SS had taken an oath of loyalty to unite with Hitler and the Reich, and the Gestapo was ostensibly the secret police of the German government. To clarify many issues, CRIPO – Criminal Investigation Department – was also set up so that its only responsibility is to deal with criminal matters in Germany. Like the Gestapo, they should be answerable to the General Directorate of Reich Security. In general, Gestapo and Kripo became known as Zippo and Security Police.
However, it does not make much sense to differentiate these organizations; Because the researchers of the Nuremberg court found that the people who applied to join the Gestapo, SD, and Kripo received the same training and cooperated a lot, so it was not possible to separate them from each other most of the time. All of them were at war with people known as enemies of the Reich, and as the war progressed, they acted beyond the rule of law.
Generally, the SD organization can be introduced as an institution for gathering information and the Gestapo as an executive police organization. The targets of the Gestapo were the political and ideological enemies of the Reich, while Kripo only worked in criminal matters.
The vampire that only later became the Gestapo was formed on April 26, 1933; That is, just when the new minister of Prussia, Hermann Göring, was assigned to train an effective political police force. On November 30, 1933, he ordered the new staff to be accountable only to Goring and Rice, with other police departments subordinated to it.
The new minister issued a new decree on March 8, 1934, separating the regional police offices from the provincial governments. On February 10, 1936, he ordered that the administrative courts no longer control the country’s secret police. The task of this new and powerful group was to investigate the crimes against the Nazi Party and the German government.
On October 1, 1936, this new group took on the name: Geheime Staatspolizei, or Gestapo for short. This German word meant the secret police of the state. The Nazi Party and its leadership controlled the Gestapo. When Göring stepped down from leading the group to take control of the air force, Heinrich Himmler was appointed chief of the German secret police.

In a part of the Gestapo Audiobook, we read:
After erasing the political and military threats of his “Millennium Reich,” Hitler faced the new threat of a financial crisis in Germany. The price of rapid renewal of armaments in the country was high, and in 1935, it was combined with an economic crisis. Hitler prioritized raw material imports over food imports, so lines outside deli shops grew longer. The sudden inflation caused the collapse of foreign exchange reserves and destroyed the popularity of the Nazi regime. In 1935, more than half of Germany’s population lived below the poverty line, and the Gestapo struggled to cope with growing discontent. Hitler desperately needed a foreign policy victory to divert public attention from these domestic problems.
On March 7, 1936, he ordered German forces to clear the Rhineland of civilian forces. This clearly violated Articles 42 and 43 of the Treaty of Versailles and Articles 1 and 2 of the Locarno Treaty, which sought to preserve these lands as a buffer zone between Germany and France. Hitler was lucky that France and Britain did not send their troops to resist the invaders. The risk paid off, and for the first time since the end of World War I, German forces received a hero’s welcome when they first entered Cologne.
On March 29, Hitler called for an election on whether the Gestapo would assist the police. Anyone who refused to vote was accused and intimidated. The official turnout was close to 99 percent, and the percentage of yes votes was similar.
Hitler grew bolder, and his popularity increased, but the fundamental problem of lack of supply persisted. The German Navy, Air Force, and Army all reported that without access to steel and other raw materials, they would be unable to strengthen their military capability. Hitler held a conference on November 5, 1937, to plan his plan. The summary of this meeting, known as the Hussbach Memorandum, outlines for the first time his policies of opening up the country, which soon led Europe into World War II.
