Yet already at this stage, the foundation for the machinery of destruction of the Jews and others was being laid. First, in 1935, Himmler unified the German police forces under his command and started to amalgamate them with the SS ¨ while recruiting key persons in other state agencies as “Verbindungsfuhrer,” or those who served him on top of their loyalty to their civilian agencies.
