The topic is about SS(Schutzsaffel).

The Schutzsaffel (Protective Squadron), or SS, was a large paramilitary organization that belong to the Nazi party. At first its initial function was to act as Nazi’s private army and personal police force. However as the WWII neared and the concentration camps were formed SS were ordered to guard and take on administrative functions. The SS were also the murders of the Holocaust. It was a complex political and military organization made up of three separate and district branches, all related but equally unique in their functions and goal. The SS- Totenkopfvebande (SS Deaths Head Organization) and later, the Waffen-SS (Armed SS) were the other two branches that made up the structure of the SS.

The first requirement of the camps was for guard and administrative personnel. At the beginning part-time volunteer members of the Allgemeine SS were used as guards. However the need of the extensive and long-range programs that were put in place needed more people to make sure everything would run smoothly. Beginning in 1933 full-time professional guard units the SS Totenkopf Verbaende- was organized. Their name – “Death Head Units” and their distinguishing insignia, the skull and cross bones, appropriately marked the type of activity in which they engaged.

During the war, members of the Allgemeine SS resumed the function of guarding the camps which they had undertaken when the camps were crated. In 1938 Hitler directed the substitution of Allgemein SS member for Death Head Units in the event of mobilization. The Totenkopfverbande expended into a military division, with the founding of the Totenkopfverbande Division which would, by 1941 become a full division at the Waffen-SS.

In 1939, with the star of the Second World War, the Totenkopfverbande began a large expansion which would eventually develop into three branches covering each at the Concentration Camp types that the SS operated. By 1944, there existed three division of the SS-VT. They served as the staff of the Concentration Camps proper in Germany and Austria, the Labor Camp system in occupied territories, and the guards and staff of the Extermination Camps in Poland the were involved in the Holocaust.

In the 1942, for administrative reasons, the guard and administrative staff of all the concentration camps become full members of the Waffen-SS. In addition, to oversee the large administrative burden of the extensive labor camp system, the concentration camps were place under the command of the SS Wirtshaft and Vervalungshauptant (WVHA) also known as the main office for economics and administrative. Oswald Pohl commanded the WVHA while Richard served as the inspector of concentration camp.

By 1944, with the concentration camps fully integrated with the Waffen-SS and under the control of the WVHA, a standard practice developed to rotate SS members in and out of the camps, based on manpower needs and also to give assignments to wounded Waffen-SS officers and soldiers who could no longer serve in front line combat duties. This rotation of personnel is the main argument that nearly the entire SS knew of the concentration camps, and what actions were committed within making the entire organization liable fir war enemies and crimes against humanity.

After the war ended and September 30, 1946 the judges of the Nurembing Trials sentences SS-organization declaring it a criminal organization. Their crimes involved the persecution and the extermination of the Jews, brutalities and killing in concentration camps, excesses in the administration of occupied territories, the administration of the slave labor programmer and the maltreat men and murder of prisoner of war. However many SS personal claimed no culpability for was crimes, using the defense thet they were “only following orders”. With that statement many wander if anyone in the SS had ever been charged, tried, or executed for refusing to carry out illegal orders.

It was then discovered that any such cans, brought before on SS and Police Court, would have established which order had been disobeyed and what kind of order it was. SS Judges have themselves admitted that the mass murder of Jews and the shooting of women and children was against German law and that no SS member could be held accountable for refusing to obey orders which were clearly illegal. In all such cases, therefore, any SS person who refused to commit atrocities was simply transferred to another branch of the SS or sent in frontlines in the Waffen-SS. In all the SS records, reviews between 1949 and 1950, there was not one case discovered where and SS member was killed for refusing to carry out illegal order associated with the Holocaust.

As stated before the SS were very complex organization. It was established for many reasons that served the *** party. Most of all it main purpose was to serve as a guard and administrative personal of concentration camps. Many of they branches were created throughout the years. As they were involved in running the concentration camps they were fully aware of the crimes that were committed on their territories, and therefore were fully responsible for them.
Hi Pawcio,

I'm sure we will be happy to go through your essay for any real mistakes but you can go through and do your own basic proofreading first.

i.e. 'Many of they branches' - you know that should be 'many of the branches'.

'that any such cans, brought before on SS and Police Court' - that any such cases, brought before an SS and Police Court'

We are not here to look for your typing errors Pawcio!Emotion: yawn
yes I know but you see I am an ESL student so it is hard for me to actually find them allEmotion: smile

I'll try to find some more, but please tell me if it makes sense what I wrote about and also

any comments are welcome.

Ok nobady wants to help me fine... I think MountainHiker was the only person that helped me the most on this forum... I wish he was here Emotion: sad
Hi Pawcio,

I will have a look, hang on.

Pawcio,

To be honest, I had difficulty following everything. It is reasonably well written from a grammar point of view. I fixed up the typos that I found here and there. I am sure I missed as many as I caught, perhaps more.

I would try to be clearer. If necessary use shorter paragraphs and identify each “actor” so that it is readily understood. For those of us who don’t follow WWII stuff, all these names seem to blend in together very easily. You challenge is to write this in such a manner that each “actor” is clearly identified and easily understood.

If that is too challenging, perhaps focus your essay on one branch of the SS.

Switching gears, when someone else assists another person, I usually don’t even bother to read their posts. I usually just look for the unanswered posts and go from there. Helping people is surprisingly time consuming and hard work. It was just luck that I stumbled across your post. Nona was correct in that we usually don’t go through larger essays looking at each individual word. We tend to give broader direction. It is like looking over a landscape from 30,000 feet as opposed being down in the trenches.

I hope this helps.

The Schutzsaffel (Protective Squadron), or SS, was a large paramilitary organization that belong to the Nazi party. At first its initial function was to act as Nazi’s private army and personal police force. However as the WWII neared and the concentration camps were formed SS were ordered to guard (guard what?) and [perform] administrative functions. The SS were also the murders of the Holocaust. [They didn’t kill the Holocaust, but rather performed the murders as part of Holocaust?]

It was a complex political and military organization made up of three separate and district [think you meant “distinct”] branches, all related but equally unique in their functions and goal. The SS- Totenkopfvebande (SS Deaths Head Organization) and later, the Waffen-SS (Armed SS) were the other two branches that made up the structure of the SS.

The first requirement of the camps was for guard and administrative personnel. At the beginning part-time volunteer members of the Allgemeine SS [who are these guys?] were used as guards.

Hi, mountain Hiker you rock...I got a 2 out of 3 on my essay thanks. Now i must get another 2 out of 3...yay!

Have you read the time machine mountain Hiker?
Or any mods out there that had read the time machine...or maybe seen the movie?
If you only got 2/3 when I helped you, I must not have done a very good job. But you shouldn't put this stuff on someone else's thread. You should have created your own. Just something to remember for next time.

Edit: Whew...I see that only gave some marginal direction. You earned your marks on your own. I don't think those of us in the peanut gallery helped you that much.
