Offered for sale is this rare original 1933 document, signed by SS-Standartenführer Heinrich (Heinz) Seetzen. The document is a statement by Seetzen that none of his ancestors are or were Jewish.

On 1 May 1933, Seetzen joined the NSDAP (Nazi Party membership number 2,732,725) and the SA. On 1 February 1935, he became a member of the SS (membership number 267,231). After an unsuccessful bid for the post of mayor in Eutin, the unemployed Seetzen took a job as a temporary worker in the Eutin government, as an assistant to SA-Brigadeführer Heinrich Böhmcker. In 1935, he joined the Gestapo.  Seetzen was promoted to Chief of the SiPo and SD in Aachen (1935-1938), Vienna, Stettin and Hamburg (January 1940 to July 1941, then absent until August 1942). As of August 1942, he was Chief of the SiPo and SD in Kassel, and then in spring 1943 in Breslau. In 1944, he was commander of the SiPo in Prague.  After the invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941, Seetzen was commander of Sonderkommando 10a, which followed Army Group South and was responsible for mass killings in the south of the Soviet Union. Austrian police officer Robert Barth, an accomplice in the mass murder, said about Seetzen:
"A particularly brutal Kommandoführer [...]. He is said to have boasted that his Kommando would shoot the most Jews. I was also told that, at his command, once the ammunition for the shootings of Jews ran out, the Jews were cast alive into a well with a depth of approximately 30 meters (98 ft)."
From 28 April to August 1944, he served as commander of Einsatzgruppe B, which perpetrated mass murder in Belarus. This unit was responsible for the deaths of more than 134,000 people in Minsk and Smolensk. After his promotion to SS-Standartenführer and police colonel, he was made Commander of the SiPo and SD in Belarus in April 1944. After his arrest by the British military police in Hamburg-Blankenese on 28 September 1945, Seetzen committed suicide using a cyanide capsule.
