Interpol was once led by the SS

The International Criminal Police Organization is best known under its informal name Interpol. With over 100 member states, it is the largest organization of its kind and facilitates police-related activities all over the globe.

Founded in 1923 in Vienna with several European member states, its headquarters was moved to Berlin in 1938 after Nazi Germany annexed Austria. Between 1938 and 1945 (until WW2 ended), Interpol was led solely by Nazi SS Generals. One of the generals was Reinhard Heydrich, who was largely responsible for orchestrating the death of 2 million people. Fortunately in 1945 after the war ended, Interpol was reorganized and moved to France, where it remains to this day.
