Nazi career[edit] He joined the NSDAP (Nazi Party) on 1 April 1931 and the SS on 7 April 1932. After meeting Reinhard Heydrich
Reinhard Heydrich
in May 1933, he asked Heydrich for a job and joined the SD. Oberg was later promoted to an SS- Oberführer
and made the police administrator for Hanover. He served in that capacity from September 1938 until January 1939. Next, Oberg served as Police President of Zwickau
until late 1941. He served as SS-und Polizeiführer ( SS and Police Leader
SS and Police Leader
- SSPF), "Radom" from August 1941 to May 1942. Oberg was promoted to SS-Brigadeführer
on 20 April 1942.[1] From May 1942 to November 1944, Oberg served as Higher SS and Police Leader (Höherer SS-und Polizeiführer, HSSPF) "Frankreich" (France) overall German police forces in France, including the SD and Gestapo. He was the supreme authority in France for managing anti-Jewish policy and the battle against the French Resistance. He thus drove the rounding up of Jews in the Paris Velodrome d'Hiver (Vel' d'Hiv Roundup) in 1942. By that time he had been condemned as the "Butcher of Paris".[2] On Reinhard Heydrich's orders, Oberg deported over 40,000 Jews from the country with the assistance of the Vichy France police force headed by René Bousquet.[3][4][5] By 1943, however, he was resisting some of the orders issued by Himmler and Hitler. On 18 January Himmler demanded a cleansing of Marseilles
with 100,000 arrests and explosive demolition of the city's crime district. Working with the French police, Oberg supervised a "minimalist" response of 6,000 arrests, 20,000 people displaced, and partial destruction of the harbour area.[6] In 1944, Oberg blocked an attempt to establish an Einsatzkommando of the Waffen-SS in France.[7] Post-war trial, sentence, and reprieve[edit] Oberg was arrested by the US military in June, 1945 and sentenced to death by a British court before receiving another death sentence from the French in October, 1954. In 1958, the sentence was commuted to life by French President René Coty, and later reduced to 20 years hard labor.[8] Oberg was pardoned by President Charles de Gaulle
