Life

Emil Haussmann was the son of an accountant in Ravensburg.[1] Haussmann joined the joined the NSDAP in January 1930[2] – three years before the Machtergreifung – at the age of 19. He was a grade school teacher. In 1937, he became a full-time employee of the Sicherheitsdienst (SD), and took over the SD-Oberabschnitt Southwest, based in the Judenreferat in Stuttgart.[3]

During the Invasion of Poland, Haussmann was part of Einsatzgruppe VI. There he was the "right hand man" for Albert Rapp. Commanding this Einsatzgruppe was Erich Naumann, who later became a co-defendant of Haussmann. After the end of hostilities, Haussmann remained with Rapp in Poland; Rapp led the Umwandererzentralstelle in Posen. This office coordinated the expulsion of Poles, Ukrainians and Jews in Reichsgau Wartheland, Reichsgau Danzig-West Prussia, East Upper Silesia and Aktion Zamość.[3]

Haussmann took part in Einsatzkommando 12 during the arraignment, Haussmann committed suicide in his cell,[4] and was removed from the process.[5] Thus, he was the only defendant at the Einsatzgruppen trial who escaped a sentence.
