Ref Note[edit]

The note about every Gestapo and Kripo officer wearing this rank being a Kriminalrat is somewhat misleading. KR was a title used by certified detectives and many Gestapo and Krpio personnel did use this positional title. However, many such detectives also were SS members and were commonly referred to by the rank of SBF, especially after 1936 which is when Arthur Nebe made it mandatory that every Kripo detective also be a member of the SS.

A good comparison would be some US police departments where "detectives", who call themselves by that title on a daily basis, will wear Sergeant and Lieutenant uniforms and also be referred to by their rank. -OberRanks (talk) 01:47, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Balance[edit]

I have re-added a picture of a sturmbannfuhrer for balance to the article, because just referring to heros is misleading 86.154.157.71 (talk) 17:52, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

It has nothing to do with "heros" of any type. Your added photo squeezes the text at the top and the entry as to Otto Förschner was not deleted only copy edited and moved to proper placement. Kierzek (talk) 17:58, 6 February 2015 (UTC)
