Joseph Berchtold

(1897 - 1962)

Joseph Berchtold, a former stationary salesman, succeeded Julius Schreck as Reichsführer SS in 1926. He was considered to be more dynamic than his predecessor, but was still unable to keep the Party organizers at bay. After much in-fighting he resigned in 1927 and was replaced by his deputy Erhard Heiden.
