1. Personal Data:
Ernst HAMMES was born 8 Nov 11 at Trier/Mosel. He received his early education in Trier and later attended the Humanistische Kaiser Wilhelm Gymnasium there. He attended the University of Cologne, but left in l934, before graduation, because of pecuniary difficulties. HAMMES made an attempt to obtain employment with the NS Studentenbund but was unsuccessful. He was rejected for officers’ candidate school of the Wehrmacht, officer in the regular police (Schupo), and even as an ordinary employee of the criminal police (Kripo), for reasons ranging from the fact that he wore glasses to his church affiliations and lack of party membership. Finally, through the efforts of an acquaintance who was a police official, he was permitted to take the examinations of the Gestapo and was finally accepted as a Krim Kom candidate in July 1935. Further police training followed and he was appointed Sturmmann (Pfc) in the SD at the end of that year.

«Prisoner: HAMMES, Ernst, Kriminalkomnmissar, Police Attache
Digest of Report: This report concerns the Office of Police Attache in Spain from 1939 until May 1945. The organization was attached to the German Embassy in Madrid and was directly responsible to the Attache Group of the Chief of the Sipo and SD in Berlin. The Office of Police Attache concerned itself mainly with police matters, although there was a certain amount of observation of general trends in Spain. Cooperation with the Spanish police was essentially limited to combatting Communism, other contact with it being chiefly of a social nature. The Office of Police Attache also reported on political trends in Spain, the status and activities of racial and political German refugees in Spain, and made security checks on the employees of German firms and other holders of passports. The routine police work of the Embassy was handled by the Office. Cooperation with members of other German agencies in Spain, such as the representatives of Amts IV and VI, did not always go smoothly. Exchange of information on a high level was kept secret, and HAMMES is not aware of the extent of such exchange. Subversive German elements in Spain, such as the Free Germany Committee, were small and ineffective. So far as HAMMES knows, there was not a great influx of Germans to Spain upon the collapse of Germany.»
1. Biography. See supra Personal Data.
2. History and Organization of the Office of Police Attache in Spain: The Office of Police Attache was established at the end of the Spanish Civil War. Germany gave considerable aid to Franco during that war in the way of materials and a force of men known as the Condor Legion, which consisted of soldiers, technicians, administrative personnel, and a number of police officials. This force was withdrawn after Franco’s victory, but a number of its key personnel either remained or soon returned to Spain to further German interests in that country.
Toward the end of 1939 the police chiefs of Germany and Spain, HIMMLER and MARTINEZ–ANIDO, concluded a police agreement whereby police representatives were to be exchanged between the two countries to effect and further the tasks and objects of the IKPK (International Criminal Police Commission). The German and Spanish police representatives were officially attached to the corresponding embassies and given the title of Police Attache.
Soon afterwards, Spain .joined the Anti-Comintern Pact, which resulted in additional, duties for the Police Attache. The work consisted of supporting and facilitating bilateral cooperations in fighting international law breakers and Comintern agents which both countries considered dangerous to their existence and aims.
The Office of Police Attache was officially attached to the German Embassy in Madrid and was directly responsible to the Attache Group of the Chief of the Sipo and SD in Berlin. The Attache Group in turn, was the liaison agency for all higher police authorities and other German central offices in Berlin. All requests and orders for the Police Attache in Madrid came through the Attache Group. All communications and reports transmitted to Berlin by the Police Attache were always addressed to the Attache Group. Since Embassy mail channels were used, however, correspondence from the Office of Police Attache first reached the Foreign Office in Berlin, from where it was forwarded to the Attache Group. With the exception of the Attache Group, direct contact with police or other offices in Berlin did not exist. Several copies of reports from the Police Attache were usually written so that the Attache Group in Berlin could distribute copies to interested agencies. In urgent matters, the teletype equipment of the German Embassy was used.
The following offices were in operation when HAMMES arrived in Spain in January 1942. Madrid: Chief from 1939 until August 1944, Krim Rat WINZER; assistants: Krim Kom HAMMES, Pol O/lnsp VEY, Krim Sek GUTBIER, Krim Sek SCHMIT, Krim Sek KOENEKE, Krim O/Asst BAALK, Krim Kom KRUEGER, chief clerk VIONSEK.
HAMMES served as chief in Madrid from October 1944 to May 1945. Hptm. von KOSCHINSKY, a representative of Amt Ordnungspolizei, was also in Madrid.
Krim Kom HAMMES from beginning 1943 to September 1944, Krim Sek HAMFLER, Krim Sek POCK. San Sebastian: Krim Asst DENKAR.
Krim Rat WINZER had already been in Madrid, attached to the Embassy since 1939, when HAMMES arrived there in January 1942. WINZER was at that time Kriminallkommissar and had been sent to Spain, with one secretary, as observer of Spanish police activities. After the signing of the Spanish-German Police Agreement late in 1939 WINZER was promoted to Kriminalrat and appointed Police Attache at the German Embassy in Madrid. One or two commissioners and five or six minor officials were assigned to the Madrid office. A number of officials were sent to cities where there were large Spanish police organizations as well as German consulates, and were attached to the latter. Shortly after HAMMES’ arrival, the representatives in Bilbao, Valencia, and Badagoz were withdrawn, since the remaining agencies were considered sufficient, and the extra personnel was either employed at Madrid or returned to Germany. At that time, there were only one or two officials in Barcelona, San Sebastian, and Tangier. Late in I943 the Spanish Government, through Allied pressure, ordered the German consulate in Tangier closed, and WINZER’s representatives were ordered back to Germany.
Although the Office of Police Attache was originally established to develop professional relationships between the Gorman and Spanish police organizations, the outbreak of the European war caused a considerable drop in the amount of police work performed. Instead, the gathering of information on Spanish domestic and foreign policies became the major activity of German police officials.
In October 1944, while HAMMES was still in Barcelona, WINZER was reported missing while on a flight to Berlin. Although Hammes HAMMES never found out what happened to WINZER, various rumors had it that WINZER had fallen into Allied hands, and that the plane had power dived into the Mediterranean since all radio contact with the plane was broken the next day. HAMMES was ordered to Madrid to conduct affairs there until further notice. As early as March 1945, HAMMES issued his first orders to destroy a part of the records because threats from the The Germany Committee through anonymous letters to German agencies were becoming more and more numerous and it was feared that the consulates in which the offices of the Police Attache were located would be occupied suddenly by members of this group. Then word came that Berlin had fallen, the rest of the records were destroyed and the officials given a final payment according to their needs.
On 8 Kay 1945, the Office of Police Attache was disbanded.
Funds for the operation of the Office of Police Attache were transmitted from the Deutsche Bank, Berlin, to the Banco Aleman in Madrid. Every official had an account and two check books for Berlin and Madrid. A check for a specified sum was sent to the Attache Group in Berlin, and the desired sum transmitted to the Banco Aleman in Madrid. WINZER had two accounts, his personal account and an account for running expenses covering all branches of the Office of Police Attache in Spain. Monthly expense accounts were submitted to the Attache Group in Berlin. HAMMES is unable to give figures„
In May 1944 the Banco Aleman blocked all German assets and the Office of Police Attache was forced to borrow from the German consulate. Shortly before WINZER left for Berlinf the Barcelona branch received back payments, but HAMMES does not know from where Madrid got the money.
When in October 1944 HAMMES arrived in Madrid to take over after WINZER’s disappearance, he, VIONSEK, administrative official, and an interpreter found 3,000,000 Pesetas in the safe of the Madrid office. WINZER had left nothing indicating the origin of the money nor for what purposes it was to be used, HAMMES states that the fund was probably stored for WINZER to dispose of as he saw fit, perhaps to pay his own agents as well as for Amt VI purposes. Berlin instructed HAMMES to use the fund for salaries and operating expenses and also for Amt VI when requested. In April 1945 HAMMES paid SINGER and KRUEGER of Amt VI 300,000 Pesetas each.
From August 1944 to 8 May 1945, HAMMES paid all expenses from the 3.000,000 Pesetas. Since this sum proved insufficient, he procured an additional 4,000,000 Pesetas from the German Embassy.
HAMMES lists approximate expenses from August 1944 to May 1945 as follows:
Salaries, personnel of all branches, August 1944- May 1945 1,000,000 Pts
Salaries for 1,200 customs officials*from France, January 1945 – August 1945 1,000,000 Pts
Final payment and aid to women and children (exclusive of Barcelona) 700,000 «
For Amt VI (request) 600,000 «
Barcelona branch 200,000 «
Emergency fund for interned German nationals (later stolen) 200,000 «
Operating and maintenance expenses October 1944 – May 1945 300,000 » Total 7,000,000 «
Shortly before his internment, HAMMES gave 200,000 Pesetas, which were to serve as an emergency fund for interned German nationals in Spain, to a certain personal friend, Maria ANDILLA-PERASNEA ( / ANDILLA-PERASNAU, misspellings of ANDILLA PERARNAU), Barcelona, 188, Calle Valencia, for safekeeping. HAMMES claims that this amount was later stolen, since PERASNEA was nowhere to be found when he attempted to contact her from the internment camp through a Spaniard.
HAMMES claims that he did not make payments to agents in Madrid. A police commissioner in Barcelona who had been transferred from Figueras because of alleged too-close cooperation with the Germans frequently received payments of 500 Pesetas. Most of HAMMES’ expenses were for gifts. HAMFLER in Barcelona made more cash payments. The running expenses of the Barcelona branch of the Office of Police Attache ran to 30,000 Pesetas monthly.
* With the disintegration of German forces in France approximately 1,200 German customs officials and members of foreign exchange tracing units (Devisenfahndungskomraandos) fled into Spain. These people were interned in three camps and were unofficially supported by German agencies in Spain. Not until the beginning of 1945 did HAMMES learn that these officials had been placed under the jurisdiction of the chief of the German police in July 1944and that his office was the responsible administrative agency.
4. Duties and Activities: The following were the duties and activities of the Office of Police Attache.
a. To Develop Professional Relationship With the Spanish Police: Official contact was maintained with all Spanish police officials. Some of the leading police officials, however, particularly those who were members of the Spanish General Staff (Alto Estado Mayor), HAMMES met only at courtesy or social calls. Still, HAMMES at one time or other during his stay in Spain met or talked to all of the Spanish police officials. HAMMES maintains that he did not personnally have regular contacts with the Spanish General Staff. Pol O/lnsp VEY and Krim Sek KOENEKE were unofficially assigned to maintain close contact with the chief of the Criminal Police Commissariat (Brigada Criminal), EAGOAGA and his staff. HAMMES and VEY, apart from this connection, were in contact with the officers of the Foreign Division of the Spanish Political Police (Comisaria General Politico-Social) Lisardo ALVAREZ and Tomas CONSUEGRA. Work in connection with the last mentioned office consisted of combatting communism and the activities of Comintern agents. Contact with the chief of the entire Spanish police (Direccion General de Seguridad) Francisco RODRIGUEZ had been only of a social and courtesy nature. However, WINZER, until his death, had been on close personal terms with RODRIGUEZ and his family. This was also true of the members of the Secretariat-General of the Spanish police (Secretaria General) LOPEZ-BARON and SUAREZ, where contact consisted of social and courtesy calls. Because of CONSUEGRA’s position as director of the Foreign Division of the Spanish Political Police, contact with HAMMES on such matters as the issuance of passports, travel permits, residence permits, was close. CONSUEGRA is supposed to have been equally cooperative with the Allies also. HAMMES disclaims any knowledge of German agents receiving Spanish identity papers from CONSUEGRA.. Such papers would have been prepared in Berlin. HAMMES did not maintain relations with Lt Col Manuel CHAMORRO of the Spanish General Staff and the Spanish Intelligence Service. CHAMORRO worked with the German Abwehr in Barcelona, and attempted to contact the Barcelona branch of the Office of Police Attache in order to get a lead into France. CHAMORRO occasionally contacted Krim Sek HAMFLER of the Barcelona police office. Maj Carlos MARISTANY also worked with the GIS in Barcelona, but was found to be working for the Allies as well when one of his agents was arrested in France with pictures of bombed German factories, HAMMES had no relations with MARISTANY, HAMMES also met Lt Col CORES of the SIS once at the German Embassy,
The Barcelona office of the Police Attache worked in liaison with Antonio LOPEZ-MORENO of the Spanish General Staff in connection with frontier problems, with HAMFLER as chief contact man. While HAMMES was in Barcelona, he, as well as HAMFLER, was in contact with POLO, Police Commissioner with the Barcelona branch of the Spanish Political Police. Their cooperation consisted of an exchange of information on Communist activities and the activities of the Red Spanish Maquis. POLO received copies of reports concerning Spanish Communist activities, which the Office of Police Attache received from Berlin, and from France through the border police station at Perpignan.
In connection with the above activities, HAMMES during his service in Barcelona made nine or ten trips to Perpignan. Most of these trips were made with Krim Sek POCK. A few were made by HAMMES accompanied by a Spanish customs or police official. The purpose of those trips was as follows: familiarization with the border stations, their personnel, and activities; conferences with border officials at Perpignan concerning the situation at the border; inquiries about illegal border crossings and smuggling; checking of statements made by Spaniards and others who tried to cross the border, and checking with Spanish police files, if necessary; filing complaints with German posts on the French side concerning members of their staffs or alleged SD or police officials who made it a practice to cross the border into Spain often for personal reasons; arranging of border crossings into France for agents of the Spanish police or General Staff who were to observe the activities of the Spanish Maquis and whose reports were made available to the Office of Police Attache.
Specialized police literature constituted a wide scope of activity and was exchanged freely. HAMMES was given access to most Spanish police files, but never had access to Spanish Intelligence Service records and bulletins. The only intelligence bulletin which
HAMMES had access to was one from the Direccion General de Seguridad. This was a low-level type of situation report giving not only police information but also material of a political nature.
Occasionally the Spanish police issued orders demanding the expulsion of German nationals suspected of espionage activities (usually at the request of Allied agencies), and the Office of Police Attache made arrangments for their departure.
Cooperation with the Spanish Safety and Traffic Police (Policia Armada y del Trafico) existed chiefly in an advisory capacity. Hptm von KOSCHINSKY, successor to Obst/Lt HARTMANN, was the representative of the Ordnungspolizei on the staff of the Police Attache. He worked independently, however, and was not subordinate to the Police Attache. Von KOSCHINSKY worked in close liaison with the inspector of the Policia Armada, Col CHINCHILLA, as well as with the chief of the Spanish Traffic Police, Lt Col OSLE.
b. To Observe Spanish Domestic Conditions and Political Trends: Initially HAMMES was not clear about the origin of this particular project,and he does not know whether WINZER began to submit such reports of his own accord or whether he was prompted to do so by Berlin.
To accomplish this task German police officials made use not only of the many official contacts which they had established, but also of the numerous unofficial connections in Spanish government, political, social, and private circles, as well as with persons from the German colony and Germans firms. Agents were frequently employed. Since direct payments were not often made to these informers, German decorations as well as gifts were handed out. Subordinate, poorly paid Spanish officials were sometimes given sums of money under the pretext of covering their «expenses». As late as January 1945, LETEL, a Frenchman, approached HAMMES in Madrid, demanding payment of a sum which WINZER had promised to him. LETEL told HAMMES that he had been in contact with members of the French Resistance and that he had agreed with WINZER, apparently before 20 July 1944, to furnish him with information on proposed plots against high German leaders, LETEL was to receive twenty thousand Pesetas for information of that nature. HAMMES was unable to check on the veracity of LETEL’s story, but paid him the twenty thousand Pesetas in January 1945.
The Office of Police Attache observed and reported on the following Spanish trends: Monarchist (both trends-Juan III and Carlos VIII); Falangist; Separatist (Catalonian, Basque); Anarchist; Communist; Freemasonry; Church vs State.
WINZER, until his death, formulated reports on the above subjects from material supplied by his subordinates, the press, literature, personal contacts, and agents. HAMMES’ sources were similar, and while in Barcelona he was in contact with Spanish student organizations, the Falange of which he knew a local leader, RAMIREZ, and members of Spanish workers’ syndicates. Confidential intimations in Spanish quarters regarding the incrossing activities of agents after the alleged dissolution of the Comintern were considered especially valuable in Berlin. HAMMES recalls one incident which tended to substantiate tho belief that there was an increase in the activities of agents. A foreigner (HAMMES does not recall his name) was arrested by the Spanish police while crossing tho Spanish-Portuguese border into Spain. The individual carried English papers, apparently forged, had come from South America, and had stopped over in Portugal to take care of some business for the Spanish Republican Government in Mexico. He was on his way to report in Madrid.
The experiences of the Spanish Civil War enabled the Spanish Political Police to devise and organize an excellent index, not only of Spaniards, but also of foreign agents who still maintained contacts with various illegal groups existing in Spain. These groups worked more against one smother than with each other. The Spanish intelligence agencies succeeded, in most cases very quickly, in penetrating these groups through betrayals resulting from jealousy, the desire to show off, or through political rivalry. According to HAMMES, the expenditures of the Spanish section of the Comintern, which was directed by the well-known Communist, Dolores IBARURRI (LA PASIONARIA), were exceptionally high, and although no conspicuous successes were realized the anti-Falangist groups wore gaining potential strength.
Exact data on the movements of these illegal groups was never to be had officially from the Spanish police. Even information bulletins issued by the Spanish police for the Government chiefs did not give a true picture of the activities of the various illegal groups.
c. To Report the Status of Racial and Political Refugees From Germany: The great influx of German racial and political refugees over the French border into Spain after the fall of France in 1940 had already taken place when HAMMES arrived in Spain. Since the large majority of them had left Spain for Portugal and overseas destinations, HAMMES’ office wat not concerned with them.
After the end of the Civil War, however, a group of Germans and Austrians, former members of the International Brigade, remained in Spain and were interned in a camp at Miranda del Ebro under the administration of the Spanish Army. After the end of the Civil War, German officials received permission from Spanish authorities to enter the camp to interview tho German internees for repatriation to Germany. HAMMES claims that approximately eighty Germans were repatriated to Germany, supposedly on a voluntary basis as requested by the Spanish Government. HAMMES states that he was personally, in 1942, in charge of a group of approximately thirty Germans whom he conducted to San Sebastian for passage to Germany. HAMMES also statos that he visited Miranda del Ebro only once, but that German consular officials had conducted interviews there, as well as DENKER and KOENEKE of the Office of Police Attache. HAMMES insists that to his knowlodge no forcible repatriations were conducted.
There were approximately one hundred Germans and Austrians left in Miranda del Ebro who refused repatriation to Germany. Most of these internees, who were living under assumed names and nationalities, were able to contact Allied Red Cross and Jewish aid committees and thereby effect their release. Some of then went to North Africa to DE GAULLE’s forces, others were trained in Allied sabotage schools and others, who desired to remain in Spain, associated themselves with the illegal Communist movement.
4. To Observe Germans in Spain and to Make Security Checks on Employees and on German Passports: In this connection, HAMMES reported Goering, alias GOERITZ, vice-consul at Barcelona and chief of Referat III Barcelona KO Spain to Berlin in 1944. GOERING had been associating very openly with a Frenchwoman. HAMMES wrote to FOERSTER at Perpignan requesting any available information. The German collapse in France broke this investigation off and GOERING was drafted into the German Army but did not leave Spain,
In another instance, HEBERLEIN, who was first councilor of the German Embassy under Ambassador STOHRER, refused orders to leave Spain for Germany after STOHRER had already been recalled. In May 1944, under the pretext that HEBERLEIN’s son was ill in Berlin, WINZER got HEBERLEIN to make the flight to Berlin in the plane of the German Air Attache, KRAMER. HEBERLEIN was then interned. Since HAMMES was in Barcelona at that time, he does not know any details of the matter. Later, Dr KEMPE, legation councilor of the German Embassy, on his way through Barcelona told HAMMES that WINZER had acted in accordance with instructions from Ambassador BIECKHOFF. Whether these instructions came from Berlin or not, KEMPE did not say. Nevertheless, WINZER requested Berlin to send a fictitious telegram stating that HEBERLEIN’s son was seriously ill in Berlin,
On request from the KO the Office of Police Attache initiated steps for mail censorship in Germany of mail for German nationals in Spain, and approved or disapproved visas and passports. The Office of Police Attache was further concerned with the investigation of all German nationals who violated the German penal code or specific provisions thereof applicable to residence in Spain.
5. Cooperation with Other German Agencies in Spain
a. All specific police work connected with the functional duties of the German Embassy was carried out, and included the following: screening of personnel to be employed, both German and Spanish; handling of passport and visa matters; permits for relatives of Embassy members to leave Germany; matters pertaining to Germans returning home. The Embassy usually had access to the reports which the Office of Police Attache submitted to Berlin, since Embassy mail channels were used.
b. Cooperation with KO Spain took place only in cases where direct requests for police assistance were submitted. The type of assistance given, often in collaboration with the Spanish police, generally consisted of the following: forwarding results of inquiries concerning the reputation or character of persons which the KO intended to employ; tracing and locating individuals, mostly Spaniards and employees of the KO, who disappeared suddenly; dealing with passport matters; procuring various information from tho files of the Police Attache. Reports received from the KO concerning political conditions in Spain were passed on to the representative of Amt VI attached to tho Office of Police Attache for transmission to Berlin,
c. Some contact was maintained with the NSDAP in Spain. Inquiries of a personal nature, concerning prospective Party members, for instance, were occasionally handled, similarly to those made for the KO. The NSDAP also effected the return to Germany of some German nationals, residents of Spain for a number of years, who had managed to make only a meager existence for themselves. They were told about more favorable working prospects and conditions in Germany and were forced to leave Spain. On pressure from the Allies, several Kreisleiters of the NSDAP, scattered in cities throughout Spain, wore ordered to leave Spain. The Office of Police Attache arranged for travel clearance and the necessary papers.
d. HAMMES does not know to what extent WINZER cooperated with SINGER , the Amt VI representative in Madrid, except for the fact that Amt VI was interested in the political reports which the Office of Police Attache submitted to Berlin. In this connection, in 1943 a dispute between WINZER and the head of the Barcelona branch, Krim Kom JOHN, resulted in the latter’s recall and HAMMES’ transfer to Barcelona, The events leading up to this dispute began in January 1943 when Krim Rat MOSIG, who was working for the Sofindus firm, but was actually a representative of Amt VI came to Barcelona on his way to Madrid. He requested that JOHN send reports that were of interest to Amt VI directly to that office from Barcelona instead, of having all reports take the long devious route through WINZER in Madrid and then to the Attache Group, which resulted in the reports being almost continually antiquated by the time they reached the interested office When WINZER heard of this procedure in the summer of 1943 he immediately roported the facts to Berlin. This resulted in a somewhat lengthy dispute between the chiefs of Aemter IV and VI, MUELLER and SCHELLENBERG, and JOHN’s transfer to Germany, charged with infidelity to Amt IV.
6. Liaison With German Agencies in France: Liaison maintained by the Office of Police Attache in Spain with German stations in France seemod to be mostly with those located on the French-Spanish border. As previously stated, HAMMES during his tour of duty at Barcelona, maintained contacts with FOERSTER at Perpignan. Krim Asst DENKER at San Sebastian probably worked in liaison with Krim Sek SCHMITT at Hendaye. HAMMES does not know to what degree SCHMITT and DENKER, if at all, cooperated with representatives of other German agencies, such as the KO covering the area San Sebastian-Hendaye. It is possible that DENKER and SCHMITT cooperated with KO men like FURCH and GENSOROWSKY and with KALLAB of Sofindus, During HAMMES’stay in Spain, he heard of KALLAB’s connections with Sofindus and assumed that he was engaged in the export business in under takings to broak the blockade, and in the shipping of tungsten. HAMMES met KALLAB for the first time at Camp 76, Asperg, Germany and learned that the latter had been working for Amt VI all the time. When HAMMES took over in Madrid in October 1944, he discovered that a great deal of correspondence from WINZER to KNOCHON, military governor of Franco in Paris, consisted of complaints regarding the frequent unauthorized crossings of German personnel stationed near the border into Spain for short trips, usually unofficial in nature.
7. Method for Securing Spanish Naturalization: HAMMES is not familiar with cases of this nature. There were, however, several German nationals, commercial men and persons working for Amt VI, who succeeded in obtaining Spanish naturalization. Because of the foreign political implications involved, the Spanish government did not favor this method with its obvious ulterior motives. Through adoption by a Spaniard plus the payment of a substantial sum, however, an individual was able to secure Spanish naturalization. One German is said to have paid thwenty thousand Pesetas for this service. In 1944 the Spanish Government issued a decree nullifying the legality of all such naturalizations.
8. Arrival of German Nationals in Spain Shortly Beforo V-Day: During tho last few months before V-Day, air traffic between Spain and Germany had become increasingly sporadic. Seats were allotted on a priority basis, and only individuals considored most important were able to make reservations. Furthermore, passengor lists pf these last minute flights had to be cleared by the RSHA. On one of the last flights the following Germans were among those who entered Spain: KRUEGER, FULDNER, and Obst/Lt WILHELMY.
KRUEGER was a representative of Amt VI, Berlin, and had been working in the Spanish section of that office, From a teletype communication from Berlin to the German Embassy at Madrid, HAMMES learned that KRUEGER was sent to Spain under the cover title of consular secretary to take care of certain short-term, tasks. SINGER, Amt VI representative in Madrid, was also notified from Berlin and instructed that KRUEGER was to work independently and he responsible only to Berlin. HAMMES disclaims knowledge of KRUEGER’s special mission, but assumes that he was in liaison with agents in France.
A member of the Kultur section of the German Embassy at Madrid, who was a co-passenger of FULDNER on the plane from Germany to Madrid, reported to the German Embassy that FULDNER had told him that he (FULDNER) was a representative of the SD. HAMMES had never heard of FULDNER before, nor did he discover the reason for FULDNER’s presence in Spain.
Obst/Lt WILHELMY, formerly an aide to the German Military Attache at the German Embassy in Madrid, managed to return to Spain against the wishes of the Military Attache of the German Embassy who had requested the Office of Police Attache to disapprove WILHELMY’s entry visa. WILHELMY, as former aide to the German Military Attache and with hopes of obtaining the position of his superior, had denounced German officials in Spain to Berlin. These denunciations reached Embassy circles in Madrid. WILHELMY was subsequently called up for active military service.Through his connections in Berlin, possibly through bribes, WILHELMY, nevertheless, was able to effect his return to Spain on one of the last flights of a Lufthansa plane. It was later mentioned in the German Embassy at Madrid that an SS officer had escorted WILHELMY to the plane either at Berlin or Stuttgart and that the SS officer handed a package to WILHELMY. HAMMES reported this to the Attache Group in Berlin, but never received a reply.
According to a report which HAMMES received from a Spanish police official, SS H/Stuf and former commander of the Sipo and SD in France, ALISCH, spent a few days in Spain. ALISCH is supposed to have made attempts to round up his former agents who fled to Spain after the German withdrawal from France, possibly for new tasks in France. HAMMES was not in touch with ALISCH. According to the Spanish police official, the Spanish Government demanded that ALISCH quit Spain immediately.
9. Werwolf Activities: HAMMES denies any knowledge of plans for or the existence of a Werwolf organization in Spain during his incumbency there. He does not believe that any German organization in Spain was instructed to form an underground movement. German agencies were instructed to carry on their operations in the event of an Allied invasion of Spain or to take precautions should relations with Spain be broken. In Madrid, two Germans claimed to have been threatened by the Werwolf. HAMMES believes that those threats were invented by the Germans in order to secure protection of the Allies.
10. The Free Germany Committee: Shortly after the German generals PAULUS and SEYDLITZ had, under Soviet sponsorship, established a Free Germany Committee in Russia, similar trends began to make themselves felt in Spain, particularly among German refagee circles.
Since Germany was losing the war, some of those Germans felt that the time had come to take a stand similar to the Stalingrad declaration. The endeavors to form a Free Germany group in Spain originated from the Spanish concentration camp, Miranda del Ebro, where some sixty to a hundred Germans, mostly under assumed names and nationalities, were held. Some of those were former members of communistic and anarchistic organizations dating back to the Spanish Civil War, and others were German deserters and criminals. Since these men were able to assume French, Czechoslovak, or Polish nationality, they were able to get out of Miranda del Ebro either with the help of the International Red Cross or on recognition by their claimed consulatos. A number of these left Spain, mostly in French collective transports to North Africa, while others remained in Spain and were supported by aid committoes. The Spanish police soon became aware of the fact that some of the Germans who remained in Spain were in contact with communistic under-cover movements. Some of them were arrested as German nationals and the German police asked to supply information regarding the true identity of the individuals and records of provious convictions, so that the Spanish police would have material to remonstrate with the aid committees.
After France was evacuated, these relatively small groups grew through the influx of customs officials and deserters from the Wehrmacht, The German Consulate and German officials began to roceive anonymous threatening letters, some of which Spanish postal authorities had seized, German officials were threatened with hangings and the occupation of German offices. Spanish authorities offered very little aid, suggesting that the Germans take special precautions. In tho Spring of 1945 the Spanish police discovered a secret printing press in Madrid, Several Germans were arrested, and HAMMES recalls only one name, Ernst BAYER. Evidence was given by tho prisoners to the effect that members of the German colony, of the diplomatic and consular staffs, and of German firms had attempted to establish contact with the movement, but that they were turned down bocause they were doomed opportunists. Others broke their contacts almost immediately, when they thought they recognized Communist motives behind the movement. It also became known that a Free Austria Committee had been established, and that Prince HOHENLOHE and Count SEYFRIED were to represent the new Austrian govemmont sanctioned by the Allies, notwithstanding the fact that the latter were supposed to have supported the allegedly Communist Free Austria Committee.
On the whole, HAMMES claims, these movements were not taken too seriously. Much of the evidence was based on rumors which Spaniards had often inflated before passing on to the Germans.
HAMMES states that Krim Sek GUTBIER attempted to penetrate the Free Germany Committee, but that results proved negative owing to the failure to establish the identity of the persons involved. The Committee remained obscure to the Office of Police Attache. As late as March 1945 GUTBIER was in Berlin, and in connection with this movement visited the Kriminal Technische Institut in an attempt to have some of the anonymous correspondence analyzed and traced to its source. Results proved negative,
11. Answers to Specific Briefs:
a. Jorge ESTRADA HAMMES does not recall ever having met anyone by that name. He recollects vaguely that ESTRADA was a man against whom his office was once warned by the Abwehr in Madrid, He claims that in any event the Office of Police Attache had no connections whatsoever with Argentina, or any other part of South America,
He is certain that agents of Amt VI maintained communication with Argentina. HAMMES recalls having heard the name THEO mentioned in this connection, but prosumes that Krim Kom SINGER, as representative of Amt VI, can give more satisfactory information on the matter,
b. GAITX FIOL was the Spanish housekeeper and general handy man employed by Krim Kom JOHN in Barcelona, When HAMMES succeeded JOHN in 1943 FIOL remained, in the some capacity under HAMMES, FIOL’s duties consisted of general messenger duties, buying supplies, paying the bills, and delivering mail. He also undertook various trips to the
French-Spanish border at Porthus to deliver and get mail. FIOL vas paid three hundred Pesetas per month and expenses. When the office was dissolved in 1945, he was given six months pay and an additional bonus of two thousand Pesetas for faithful service. HAMMES states that FIOL’s activities were restricted to the aforementioned, and that he was un-suited for work of a more serious or important nature.
c. Arthur GEBAUER, alias GOLD BAUER Apparently coming from France, GEBAUER appeared in 1943 at the German Consulate in Barcelona and was referred to HAMMES at the Office of Police Attache in Barcelona. GEBAUER explained to HAMMES that he was engaged in a secret mission for Berlin with instructions not to contact any German agency in Spain, but that he needed funds and a passport. HAMMES distrusted GEBAUER and turned him away. A short time later GEBAUER again appeared in HAMMES’s office, accompanied by a Spanish police official, who supposedly arrested GEBAUER for the latter’s failure to have in his possession the required papers. GEBAUER is supposed to have bribed the police official so that the latter agreed to take him back to HAMMES. HAMMES contacted his Madrid headquarters and was told to send GEBAUER on to Madrid since SINGER of Amt VI had instructions regarding GEBAUER. It was never clear to HAMMES what particular mission HAMMES was to perform nor for whom he was working. HAMMES later heard that GEBAUER had been arrested by the Spanish police.
Comments and Recommendations: Although the Office of Police Attache in Spain was established ostensibly for the purpose of effecting police cooperation between Germany and Spain, its roots and missions originally planned go much deeper.
In this connection it is of interest and importance to quote Walter SCHELLENBERG regarding his interpretation of the Office of Police Attache in Madrid. Under interrogation SCHELLENBERG stated as follows:
«This (office) can be explained historically. A close relationship between Germany and Spain had already grown out of the war in l935/36, Condor Legion, etc. It was during that time that the first contacts between the Spanish IS and the old Abwehr were made. These connections were continued socially after 1936 They were intensified in 1940 when the German General Staff planned a Gibraltar move. At that time conferences between the Spanish military and the German General Staff were considering plans concerning certain areas to be occupied in Spain. In conjunction with this plan, it was considered, through Ambassador Count MARIALDO (misspelling of Conde de MAYALDE) in Berlin, who served as intermediary,what role the police should play.
I assume that within the limits of this general plan it was decidad -whether SERANO SUNNER (misspelling of SERRANO SUÑER) took part I do not know- that certain advance police commands of tho SD were to be active in Spain. These police commands left for Spain and were stationed in various cities. Since there was practically no work of an executive nature, these people, whether they were schooled or not, began to submit intelligence reports. Naturally, nothing came of this, and it was mostly a failure.
When I took over the political intelligence branch of tho Intelligence Service, I found conditions in the Amt VI sector very poor. I considered then, since I always had difficulties with the Foreign Office, that it would probably be of value to recall to Berlin a few of these people from the police commands, in order to train and exploit them. Counteracting these efforts, which I planned very carefully, since these people were already marked men, were the strivings of WINZER, a clever person, who had been in Spain with the Condor Legion and who desired to establish an official department within the bounds of the German Embassy, by consolidating these police commands under his leadership as Police Attache. This suited MUELLER’s ideas since he wanted to place police attaches everywhere. He wanted to abolish Amt VI and to place everything under his command. After a comparatively short time he was able, with the aid of HEYDRICH, to make an agreement with the Foreign Office establishing police attache offices in certain European countries.
One of the first ones was set up in Madrid under WINZER, unquestionably a close confidant of MUELLER, I then attempted for two reasons to make the police attache useful to myself. Firstly, to eliminates this man as a competitive factor from the undercover controversy raging between myself and MUELLER, since nothing is more dangerous than an organization in a foreign country which operates against one’s own office, i.e., through the observation of expenditures, the private lives of individuals, etc. Secondly, it is without doubt a duty of the members of an organization within an intelligence service, who have the time and opportunity, to gather intelligence information. Since WINZER considered himself an official of the criminal police, and, at the most, received only foreign exchange from me, his decisions and opinions were always hinged on those of MUELLER. I watched this for a while, and then went my own way, I had eliminated them as trouble makers since I controlled foreign exchange funds. Professionally, I shortly became convinced that they didn’t moan anything to me, I, therefore, did not fight for their position. I recognized them as a group which should not be allowed to have anything to do with intelligence work, since they were marked men who carried their labels over into the intelligence service. Nevertheless, in the course of daily activities, I had to employ these people -some ten to fifteen who were concentrated there- so that they would not disturb me. To this extent, I accepted intelligence information from them, as well as giving them certain counterespionage tasks. But I can state with certainty that I placed, since the beginning of 1943 no importance whatsoever on the police attaches.»
HAMMES was Police Attache in Madrid only from October 1944 to May 1945. He is able to furnish very little information on the activities of his predecessor and chief, Krim Rat WINZER, who served as Police Attache in Spain from 1940 to 1944. The interrogation reveals that HAMMES’ comparative youth and inexperience, in contrast to his predecessor WINZER, as well as lack of sufficient rank as Police Attache, failed to gain him the confidence and insight that other more experienced representatives of German agencies in Spain enjoyed. HAMMES as Kriminalkommissar, held the equivalent rank of O/Stuf in the SS, although he was never officially a member of that organization. It is recommended that he be evacuated to an internment camp for disposition in accordance with current directives.»

Interrogated July 8, 1946. Referred to an ALTERSHEIM b/ SCHLESIEN. HEINZ belonged to Amt 6 (Sicherheits-Dienst im Ausland), previously in Sttaats-Polizei.
He went to Spain 15 January 1937, in the Legion Condor (knowing Spanish and having worked for the J. G. White Engineering Corporation in Central America. He stayed in Spain until May 1938, when he took leave in Germany and finally returned from Spain in June, 1939. He then did duty at Dusseldorf in Abt 3, but was sent to Spain in Political and Economic Intelligence (Amt 6) early in 1940, where he stayed until April 1941. April, 1941 Nine month’s course in Berlin. After that, he left the Staatspolizei but took up further Amt 6 work in Spain, where he was, officially, at the Madrid Consulate (i/c Briefstelle). He had no chief in Spain, coming directly under Brigade Führer Schellenberg and Gruppenleiter Steremberg, Berlin, who sent him orders by diplomatic courier.
– Engelbert SCHMIDT. In Madrid as a member of the Spanish-German Police Exchange Agreement.
– OTSUP. SINGER meets him at Rotfritz.
– SCHLUETER made SINGER ’s acquaintance owing to a demand by the former to use the Post Office facilities, which Berlin approved. Singer thought that Schueter worked for Amt 6 (Economic Sub-section) which was directly under Berlin, just as was his sub-section (Amt 6-Political).
– SINGER met CLOTH finally only, al Caldas Internment Camp, prior to be sent to Germany. Schlueter seems to have told Singer in June-July 1944 that he was acting as an intermediary in the transmission of Allied peace proposals to Berlin. Once Schlueter came with a man who seemed to work for USA, but appeared German, who spoke of a frenchman LECOINT and who wanted to «get a line» on Singer. Singer described Schlueter as dark haired, German looking, perhaps from Black Forest region, a good an adaptable business, smart but not a big man. He visited Singer’s house and spoke of wanting to go back to Germany a to a Russian occupied part.

«El Partido Nazi, incluso no siendo legal en España durante la República, dispuso en Barcelona de una sede en una chalet del barrio de Sant Gervasi, concretamente en el número 16 de la calle Ferran Puig, donde se editaba el Deutsche Vorposlen, el semanario del Partido. Gracias a la abundante documentación consultada, se puede ratificar que desde inicios del 1934 el Jefe del Partido Nazi en Barcelona fue Hans Hellermann, nacido en Schwelm (Wesfalia) en 1909. Hellermann se afilió al Partido Nazi con el número de carné 186.721. A finales de 1933, por órdenes directas de la organización en el extranjero del Partido, la German Auslandorganisation (AO), fue enviada a Barcelona para extender y propagar la idea del nuevo orden europeo entre los alemanes. Cabe mencionar que los catalanes y españoles no podían afiliarse al partido de Hitler.
En Barcelona, Hellermann se instaló en el quinto piso del número 6 de la calle Jesús, en el barrio de Gràcia, y después, en la calle Aribau, 124 1º, 3ª.
Junto con Otto Philippi, un personaje de origen sudamericano educado en Alemania, abrió una sociedad mercantil en la calle Avinyó que nunca actuó como tal. La primera orden del Jefe del nazismo en Cataluña fue la utilización de códigos en las circulares que se enviaban a Berlín. Así, sabemos que cuando los nazis se referían a los arios habían de utilizar la denominación “grupo I”; para el partido nazi, “grupo 50”; para los masones, “grupo M”, y para los judíos “grupo U”. Por si sus enemigos accedían a esta información, Hellermann estableció la aplicación de frases comerciales en los documentos más comprometidos. Se han encontrado las claves en documentos reservados, hecho que hoy permite saber que cuando una situación había empeorado para sus intereses, se había de decir “preparado viaje”; conspiración, en clave, era “vendido automóvil”; situación aclarada, “descuento concedido”; los revólveres eran “naranjas”; las ametralladoras “olivas”; los cañones “plátanos”, etc.
El astuto Hellermann esquivó los problemas con las autoridades locales resguardando al Partido Nazi, bajo el paraguas legal de la Asociación Nacional Alemana de Dependientes de Comercio, posteriormente denominada Frente del Trabajo Alemán, con sede en la calle Ferran Puig, 49, curiosamente al lado de las oficinas del Partido Nacionalsocialista. El jefe de ese organismo era Anton Leistert, un individuo controvertido, sadomasoquista practicante, según se desprende de los documentos y cartas personales encontradas en sus domicilios, en la calle Muntaner y al passeig de Pujades. Con la victoria del Partido Nazi, Leistert ordenó la sustitución de todos los miembros de la antigua junta directiva de la entidad por nuevos individuos con el carné del Partido. De hecho, solo podían ser directivos de los organismos oficiales alemanes en Cataluña los afiliados al NSDAP. Quien se negó, fue depurado, expulsado y hasta amenazado con la pérdida de la nacionalidad alemana.
Leistert también se ocupaba de las finanzas del Partido en Barcelona y controlaba que todo el mundo, particulares y empresas, pagaran la cuota de militancia. Además, exigió que todas las firmas comerciales alemanas presentaran un informe de los trabajadores clasificados en grupos, según si eran, “alemanes puros”, “descendientes de alemanes”, “otras nacionalidades” o del “grupo U”, es decir judíos.
Con Hellermann y Leistert, la tela de araña nazi se extendió rápidamente por todo el país. Si en noviembre de 1934 existían 25 grupos locales del Partido en la Península, dos años más tarde ya eran 163, según un documento de fecha 6 de julio de 1936. En Cataluña había 21 repartidos entre las siguientes poblaciones: Barcelona, Bellaterra, Cornellà del Llobregat, Gavà, Montcada i Reixac, Navàs, Sallent, Santa Coloma de Gramanet, Terrassa, Balsareny, Castellà del Vallès, Espulgues del Llobregat, El Masnou, Premià de Mar, Sant Cugat del Vallès, Súria, Tortosa, Flix, Sant feliu de Guíxols, Palafrugell i Palamós.¨ (Sapiens)

SD suggested source and subject shoul have German passports to enter Spain. Subject’s passport was issued in the name of BACH. Upon arrival MARTINEZ FERRERA, then in Barcelona, arranged for Honduran passports of both to be regularized by Spanish police in Madrid. From a reliable source January 2, 1945: Honduran passport No 230 issued at Vichy December 1st, 1942 valid to December 1st, 1945. Wife Alicia STERN, born in Leipzig, Germany, September 30, 1908.

( Pablo SANCHEZ LARQUE was nominally «Teniente provisional de Caballería, del Regimiento Cazadores de Los Castillejos» , wounded in Spanish Civil war fighting with FRANCO. He was in S.I.M).
From a reliable source, November, 1944: Through SANCHEZ LARQUE of the S.I.M. with whom source was working in IS concerning the Allies and Italians, he met subject in 1944. At that time subject and SANCHEZ LARQUE were preparing sabotage of italian ship Orsa in Mallorca for which job they enlIed FERRETI’s help. Others involved in this plan were Lt. MARTINEZ ANIDO (misspelled AMIDO in some documents) of Tanger and one MENDOZA.
Source met subject and SANCHEZ LARQUE almost daily and supplied them with C.E material. Some time in August subject paid FERRETTI for his services 170 sterling pounds which he stated had been left behind at Dunkirk and later withdrawn from circulation by the British. In September Arnin SCHMIDT was found by the Spanish police in possession of 850.000 pts worth of the same type of pound sterling notes which he was going to sell to two Portuguese he was expecting.

HONNEBOLD, Walter. In 1945 listed as German customs official refugee in Spain (OSS records).
HONSIK, Gerd. ( From Wikipedia) : Honsik was a functionary in the Austrian «Volksbewegung» («People’s Movement»), also known as «Volksbewegung gegen Überfremdung» («People’s Movement against Foreign Infiltration») and «Ausländer-Halt-Bewegung» («No More Foreigners Movement»), as well as in Austria’s far-right NDP party. He was the founder of a militia group, the Nationale Front, which according to its manifesto carried out activities to effect «the abolition of the system».
He has also appeared under the pseudonym «Gerhon Endsik», an anagram of the syllables of his name extended by two letters, intended to allude to the (politically charged) German term Endsieg («final victory»).
Honsik has been fined and sentenced to jail in several Austrian court cases due to his activities as a Holocaust denier. He evaded his most recent sentence by fleeing the country, and residing in Spain until 24 August 2007 when he was arrested in Málaga after a recent change in Spanish legislation. On the 4th of October 2007 Honsik was extradited to Austria to serve out an 18-month prison sentence stemming from a 1992 conviction for Holocaust denial. Spain had previously refused requests to extradite Honsik because Holocaust denial and neo-Nazi propaganda were not illegal in that country. Honsik was only extradited after two European-wide arrest warrants were issued at Austria’s request.
While in Spain Honsik contributed to the magazine Halt («Stop») at irregular intervals. The magazine publishes Holocaust-denying and anti-Semitic articles. Honsik also wrote a book, «Hitler Innocent?», in which he attempts to justify some Nazi-era crimes.
On 27 April 2009, Honsik was sentenced to five years in prison in Austria for propagating Holocaust denial, later reduced to four years. The prosecutor argued that Honsik is «one of the ideological leaders» of Europe’s neo-Nazi movement and that his distribution of «hate magazines» at schools violated Austrian law. During the trial, Honsik called himself «a social democrat» and stated that he only «rejected the textbook wisdom that demonizes National Socialism» and he only denied the existence of the gas chambers used in concentration camps «wherever I had not verified the (facts) myself». At one point, Honsik began screaming and pounding his fists after the judge denied his requests to introduce evidence which the court had deemed irrelevant.
Honsik denied the charges and said he would appeal the verdict; the prosecutor stated that he also would appeal to seek a longer jail-term of up to 20 years.
