Biography

In 1926, he was a member of the Freikorps, fighting against both the Weimar Republic and communists. On 1 February 1929, Saevecke became a member of the NSDAP (Nazi Party) (member 112,407). In 1938 he became a member of the Schutzstaffel (SS) (member 396,401). After the war in Europe started, he was a member of the mobile SS death squad, Einsatzgruppen IV in Poland through 1940. Later he was promoted to the rank of SS-Hauptsturmführer and served in the SS-Sicherheitsdienst (SD; Security Service) in Libya and Tunisia between 1942-1943, under Walter Rauff. During 1943 to 1945, Saevecke was head of the Gestapo and the Italian fascist police in Milan. During his time he was responsible for the deportation of at least 700 Italian Jews to extermination camps.
