High Nazi Official Appointed Chief of Police of German Capital

Dr. Wilhelm Tegethoff, former chief of political indoctrination for the Nazi Party in Waldenburg, has been appointed Chief of Police of this city, the capital of West Germany.

The ex-Nazi official has now become the guardian of public safety and of the German Constitution in the German capital despite the fact that he was a trusted leader of the Nazi regime. During the last three years of the war he held the post of Deputy Police President of Hanover, a position given only to reliable Nazis.
