Was German Gestapo Head Heinrich Mueller Buried In A Jewish Cemetery?
WHAT ever happened to German Gestapo head Heinrich Mueller? For decades there were alleged sightings of Mueller in Cuba, Argentina and elsewhere. But Johannes Tuchel, director of Berlin’s German Resistance Memorial Centre, says he’s uncovered evidence Mueller didn’t make it out of Berlin. He says several documents, including a 1945 death certificate and a grave digger’s testimony to police in 1963, make it “clear-cut” to him that Mueller died and was buried near the Luftwaffe headquarters in the final days of the war. He says Mueller was later disinterred and buried with thousands others in a common grave in a Jewish cemetery destroyed by the Nazis.

The man who had said in 1945, ”I will leap into my grave laughing because the feeling that I have five million human beings on my conscience is for me a source of extraordinary satisfaction” was sentenced to death.
He was hanged.
Did Mueller get away?
