Characters In History: What Became Of SS Gestapo Chief Heinrich Muller after World War 2? ( Part 1)

The fate of SS GESTAPO chief Heinrich Muller, and some other aides who had hidden along side Adolph Hitler in an under ground bunker has become a subject of uncertain controversy in history.

It was the eve of the allied invasion of the city of Berlin in May of 1945. Heinrich Muller, Hitlers chief of Nazi Gemanys secret police {GESTAPO} had been reported to have committed suicide with his wife. His boss the Fuhrer, according to the report did same a day before on April 30th.

Muller, forty-five who coincidentally bore the same name with other German Nazi officers was distinguished as ‘GESTAPO’ Muller. It was reported that on the day of his alledged suicide he had administered cyanide to his five children who later died in their sleep and had himself and his wife shot by one of his aides in both their heads.

He was said to have personally given innitial instructions to carry out the deed. Their bodies were later burnt and buried, the report further stated.

For fear of the allied invasion and imminent reprisals on the elite members of the Nazi regime, Adolph Hitler and a select group of his Hench men including their families went down into the Fuhrers’ bunker and eventually took their own lives, rather than be captured by the Russians who were the first of the allied ensemble to enter Berlin and were encroaching fast on the Nazi head quarters building where Hitler was suspected to be holed up with top officials of the Nazi regime.

Adolph Hitlers pilot Hans Bauer had quoted Muller as saying; “…we know the Russian {and their} methods exactly. I have’nt the faintest intention of being taken prisoner by the Russians.” Muller was last seen after that statement and no trace of him had been found. He was the most senior member of the Nazi GESTAPO regime whose fate has remained a mystery till date.



Heinrich Muller was born to working class catholic parents in Munich in Bavaria. During the first world war, he earned the iron cross for bravery as a pilot for an artillery spotting unit. His career after the war saw him working for the Bavarian police department in 1919. Having a controversial antecedent himself, Muller had not innitially been a member of the Nazi party and was committed only to his work as a police officer and in “performing his duties and obligations to the state.”

He was also known to be ambitious and was said to have been greatly influenced by Reinhard Heydrich and Heinrich Himmler, who were Nazi party members and only became a member himself in 1939 at the out break of the second world war.

Considering his ambitious disposition it has been suggested that Muller actually became a member for purely opportunistic reasons of improving his chances of promotion and only after Himmler insisted that he must. He grew rapidly in the Nazi regime through the ranks of the SS as ‘Gruppenfuhrer’ {lieutenant- General} in the same year and became chief of the state secret police, the GESTAPO when it was consolidated under Heydrich into Reich main security office {RSHA}.

Muller was responsible for the arrests, torture and eventual incarceration and death of over one million people mostly Jews who were perceived as the regimes detractors. Aspersions were there fore being cast as to the actual fate of this controversial character in history.

Muller was known to be capable of master minding, engineering, and fabricating any allegation against the perceived enemies of the state, as GESTAPO chief. His disappearance after the invasion of Berlin could most probably have been orchestrated by him as many believed and still do.
