The Schutzstaffel (SS), a notorious organization within Nazi Germany, played a significant role in the Holocaust and other atrocities committed during World War II. As members of the SS, they were responsible for carrying out the Final Solution, the systematic extermination of Jews and other minorities. Their actions were characterized by extreme brutality and a complete disregard for human life. The SS also maintained a network of concentration camps, where millions of people were subjected to torture, starvation, and forced labor. The Nuremberg Trials after the war found the SS to be a criminal organization, and its members were held accountable for their crimes.
