(1902 - 1997)
Achim Gercke was a Nazi politician.
Born in Greifswald, Gercke became a department head
of the NSDAP in Munich on
January 1, 1932.
In April 1933,
he was appointed to the Ministry of the Interior, where he served as
an "expert" on racial matters. When Gauleiter Rudolf Jordan
claimed Reinhard Heydrich wasn't “Aryan,” it was Gercke who investigated the issue
and concluded that Heydrich was a pure “Aryan.”
