  Walter Schellenberg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Walter (correctly Walther) Friedrich Schellenberg (January 16, 1910 – March 31, 1952) was a German Nazi who rose through the SS to become, following the abolition of the Abwehr in 1944, head of foreign intelligence.
Schellenberg was born in Saarbrücken, Germany, but moved with his family to Luxembourg when the French occupation of the Saarland after the First World War triggered an economic crisis in the Weimar Republic.
Schellenberg returned to Germany to attend university, first at the University of Marburg and then, in 1929, at the University of Bonn.

Schellenberg never gave any indication that he knew about the function of the Einsatzgruppen as mobile killing squads; the closest he ever came to admitting that anything was askew was when he related after the war that Heydrich and Wagner retreated to a different room to discuss an additional, secret Führer order.
Walter Schellenberg was certainly not as far removed from Nazi ideology as he would have liked the world to elieve after the war, and as he apparently believed himself to be.
Schellenberg presumably belonged to the latter category; he was a National Socialist for reasons of personal ambition, or as Waneck put it, "maybe at the bottom of his heart.

Schellenberg is a municipality in the lowland area of Liechtenstein, on the banks of the Rhine.

Hess was fairly selective about the groups and individuals that he favored, and he did not shy away from going to bat for them in the face of sometimes intense opposition from other Nazi leaders.
