additional Theodor Eicke information:

Theodor Eicke (17 October 1892 – 26 February 1943) was a SS-Obergruppenfuehrer (General), commander of the SS-Division Totenkopf and one of the key figures in the establishment of the concentration camps in Germany. His NSDAP membership number was 114,901 and his SS number was 2,921. Together with SS-Obersturmbannfuehrer Michael Lippert, Eicke executed SA leader Ernst Roehm following the so called 'Night of the Long Knives'. On 26 June 1933, Himmler appointed him commandant of Dachau. Eicke requested a permanent unit that was granted by Himmler and the SS-Wachver-bände (Guard Unit) was formed. Eicke as commander of Dachau reorganized the camp. Eicke devised a system that was used as a model for future camps throughout Germany.  He established new guarding provisions which included rigid discipline, total obedience to orders, and tightening disciplinary and punishment regulations for detainees. Uniforms were issued for prisoners and guards alike; the guards' uniforms had a special Death’s Head insignia. At the beginning of World War II, the success of the Totenkopf's sister formations the SS-Infanterie-Regiment (mot) Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler and the three Standarten of the SS-Verfügungstruppe led to Hitler approving Himmler's recommendation for the creation of three Waffen-SS divisions in October 1939. SS-Division Totenkopf was formed from concentration camp guards of the 1st (Oberbayern), 2nd (Brandenburg) and 3rd (Thüringen) Standarten (regiments) of the SS-Totenkopfverbände, and soldiers from the SS-Heimwehr Danzig. Eicke was given command of the division. The Totenkopf Division went on to become one of the most effective German fighting formations on the Eastern Front, often serving as "Hitler's firemen", rushed to the scene of Soviet breakthroughs. Eicke was killed on 26 February 1943, several months after being promoted to SS-Obergruppenführer (equivalent to general in the Waffen-SS). While performing a battlefield reconnaissance during the opening stages of the Third Battle of Kharkov, his Fieseler Fi 156 Storch was shot down by Soviet troops.
