Nazi SS General and leader of the Reich Security Office (RSHA), which was an umbrella organization including the Gestapo, the criminal police, and the internal Security Service. Heydrich was one of the main authors of the Nazi "Final Solution" and Holocaust against the Jews. Often called the "Blond Beast," he was ruthless in his persecution. His car was attacked and bombed by Free Czech agents in Prague on May 27, 1942, and he died later of his wounds. This action brought down massive reprisals and executions by the Nazis. Heydrich was buried with military honors in the Invaliden Cemetery in Berlin, but his grave was destroyed by the Soviets after the war.
