  Karl Hanke
Karl Hanke (August 24, 1903–May, 1945) was a Nazi Party official who served as Gauleiter of Lower Silesia from 1940 to 1945 and was also a key member of Joseph Goebbels's Propagandaministerium throughout the years of the Third Reich.
Hanke's assumption to the rank of Reichsführer-SS was as a result of Adolf Hitler proclaiming Himmler as a traitor and stripping Himmler of all his offices and ranks and ordering his arrest.
Karl Hanke was never to receive word of his promotion to the highest possible SS rank, as he was captured by either Czech or Polish partisans and executed sometime in May of 1945.
