Wilhelm Frick is born in Alsenz, Germany. He will be one of just two people with seats in Hitler's cabinet continuously from the time Hitler is appointed chancellor until the end of the war. As Minister of the Interior he will be responsible for creating most of the "Gleichshaltung" laws used to transfer power to the central government and consolidate Nazi control over all aspects of German society.

Wilhelm Frick will also be responsible for drafting most of Germany's antisemitic laws and for organizing German rearmament in violation of the Versailles Treaty. He will not, however, control the police — that power will rest with Heinrich Himmler who replaces Frick as Minister of the Interior in 1943.
