- "You are in the hands of the Gestapo. Don't imagine that we shall show you the slightest consideration. The Fuhrer has already shown the world that he is invincible and soon he will come and liberate the people of England from the Jews and Plutocrats such as you. It is war and Germany is fighting for her existence. You are in the greatest danger and if you want to live another day must be very careful."
- —Heinrich Muller, to Sigismund Payne Best
- "If we had fifty Eichmann's, we would have won the war."
- —Muller's remark on Adolf Eichmann's devotion.
Heinrich "Gestapo" Müller (April 28th 1900 - May 1945 assumed) was a German police officer and chief of the Gestapo the political secret state police of Nazi Germany, and was involved in the planning and execution of Jews, Poles, Slavs, Communists, Homosexuals, Jehovah's Witnesses, Freemasons, disabled, and mentally ill during The Holocaust. He was known as "Gestapo Müller" to distinguish him from another SS general named Heinrich Müller. He was last seen in the Führerbunker in Berlin on May 1st, 1945 and remains the most senior figure of the Nazi regime who was never captured or confirmed to have died.
Some believe he died or committed suicide in Berlin while others believe he made it to South America with other fellow escaped Nazi war criminals.
The theory of his survival was increased in the 1960s with Adolf Eichmann admitting that Müller might still be alive.
- Unlike many Nazi leaders who were opposed to Christianity, Müller was a devote Roman Catholic.
