SS Sturmbannfuhrer Hermann Mueller was the Gestapo chief who commanded the deportations and extermination of Galician Jews in the Tarnopol region from 1941 to 1943. His name is cursed like Amalek by Holocaust survivors, and my journey into Jewish genealogy prompted me to learn more about him. Most important, I wanted to know, what had happened to this butcher known as “blutiger Judenfeind” (bloody enemy of the Jews) who orchestrated the deaths of thousands in my ancestral towns.
