  • Curt von Gottberg was a Nazi official and military commander. Beginning in October 1942, within a few years he had personally combined the highest civil and military powers in occupied Belarus: from March 1943 as representative of the HSSPF for central Russia, and from October 1943 as the acting Commissioner-General of the occupied Belorussian SSR. Only a few days before the collapse of the German Army Group Centre, in early July 1944, he was promoted to HSSPF of Belarus and central Russia. Gottberg is known to have personally ordered many actions resulting in war crimes, and commanded units that committed atrocities against the civilian population of occupied territories.
