The British dithered. Instead of taking a stand, they sabotaged Germany’s resistance to the Nazi plague.

And it was Dzino who introduced Hanussen to Count Helldorf. Helldorf, a degenerate and dissolute aristocrat, was the commander of the SA, the brownshirt Nazi private army in Berlin. This was, of course, before the Machtergreifung, Hitler's coming to power. Nazis and Communists were still battling in the cities of Germany; Hindenburg hadn't yet.   Wolf-Heinrich Graf von 2, × 2,; KB Bundesarchiv B Bild-P, Döberitz, SA Fahnenweihe und × ; 74 KB Bundesarchiv Bild B, Reichspräsidentenwahl, Ansprache Adolf × ; 60 KB.
