German first chief of the Gestapo, founded as a secret police force in June, 1933, appointed by his patron Goering. The son of a farmer, he joined the military toward the end of WW I and entered law school in 1919.

When Himmler took control of the Gestapo in 1934, he made sure that Diels was dismissed. He had a reputation as a heavy drinker and made rash statements publicly; however, he had an unquestioning loyalty and subservience to Hitler. He became Assistant Police Administrator of Berlin in 1934.

After the July 1944 plot against Hitler, Diels was on the list of suspects. Arrested and put into Gestapo prison, he survived the fall of the Third Reich. After WW II he was employed as a provincial administrator in lower Saxony.

He died Nov. 18, 1957, accidentally shooting himself while on a hunting trip.
