The SS Units in Danzig, 1933 - 1939.
In the free city also were organized local SS units, being the first of it the 36 SS Standarte (Regiment) organized from the General SS (Allgemeine SS) at the beginning of 1933. Having a strenght of 600 men it was stationed in Danzig and Zoppot; the Unit was in charge of Doctor Alexander Reiner, one of the founders of the local SS formations. In turn, this Standarte was subordinated to the commander of the SS-Oberabschnitts Nord-Ost, Erich von dem Bach-Zelewsky. Later with the city already incorporated into the Reich, to December 1939, it was transformed into a larger unit, the XXVI SS Abschnitt deployed at Zoppot. Its leader still was Doctor Alexander Reiner now promoted to SS Oberführer.
Within this organization were created elements of cavalry, motorized and communications. On August 3, 1934, the SS Oberführer Reiner issued a secret directive stating his subordinates should assist the Security Police in Danzig (Danziger Schutzpolizei).
Between 1935 and 1938 the SS and SA became the largest paramilitaries organizations within the free city, fully equipped and dressed in uniforms.
