SS-Gruppenführer Kaltenbrunner
This is the full and complete 1942 German income tax return for Generalleutnant der Polizei und SS-Gruppenführer Dr. Ernst Kaltenbrunner of Wien (Vienna), Germany (now Austria). Kaltenbrunner, a childhood friend of Adolf Eichmann, was a principal police official and ran SS-Oberabschnitt Donau in that part of Germany known as Ostmark and rose to become Chief of the Reichssicherheitshauptamt (RSHA or State Main Security Office) after the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich.
In 1944 he also took over the Foreign and Counter Intelligence Department of the Abwehr which became a branch of the RSHA. On December 9 1944 he was awarded the Knight's Cross.
At the end of the war he fled to Tirol where he was arrested by the United States Army. He was brought before the International Military Tribunal at Nürnberg where he was convicted of war crimes and crimes against humanity. He was hanged by the Allies on 16 October 1946.
