Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

The organization was the first Nazi Party intelligence organization to be established and was often considered a "sister organization" with the Gestapo, which the SS had infiltrated heavily after 1934. Between 1933 and 1939, the SD was administered as an independent SS office, after which it was transferred to the authority of the Reich Security Head Office (Reichssicherheitshauptamt, or RSHA), as one of its five offices.

Sonderaktion 1005: The Sonderaktion 1005, also called Aktion 1005, or Enterdungsaktion ("Exhumation action") was an operation conducted by Nazi Germany during the Second World War, the aim of which was to hide traces of mass murder conducted by German forces during Aktion Reinhard. Conducted in strict secrecy during 1942-1944, it made use of prisoners from concentration camps, Jews, or men from neighbouring areas. Workers in this capacity were officially called Leichenkommando ("corpse units"); they were often put in chains in order to prevent escape. The Aktion was overseen by Sonderkommando 1005, along with squads of the Sicherheitsdienst and Ordnungspolizei.
