Theodor Eicke, the infamous commander of Dachau, belonged to the Totenkopfverbande - the SS branch responsible for running Himmler's network of concentration camps and extermination centers.

Eicke encouraged his concentration camp staff to live up to their death's head symbol and treat Dachau's prisoners with "inflexible harshness."

He was killed on the Eastern Front.
