Goering Agrees to Transfer Authority Over Gestapo to Himmler

Hermann Göring Transfers Control of the Gestapo to Heinrich Himmler
Source: Deutsches Bundesarchiv

Although Hermann Goering and Heinrich Himmler are frequently at odds with each other, they are willing to put aside their differences in the interest of cooperating against the Sturmabteilung (SA).

On this date, Goering agrees to transfer authority over the Gestapo to Himmler, who can then assume control over all police forces across Germany (except Prussia). Goering does, however, retain control over one special police battalion which he names after himself. Himmler and Goering are joined by Reinhard Heydrich in a plot to use the SS to eliminate the SA.
