Apparently, according to newly revealed historical evidence, a German-born Nazi General and the head of the Gestapo, Hitler's secret police, Heinrich Mueller, was laid to rest in a Jewish cemetery in Berlin, 1945.

A German newspaper reported Thursday that for the past 68 years, it was unclear where Mueller had been buried, but, according to new documents located by a historian, his body rests alongside hundreds of Jews who perished during the Holocaust in a common grave in central Berlin.

"Mueller didn't survive the end of the war," the German paper quoted Johannes Tuchel, head of the Memorial to the German Resistance, as saying. "His body was interred in 1945 in the Jewish cemetery in Berlin-Mitte in a mass grave," he added.

There were many reports that followed the war implying Mueller had survived the war, and was able to relocate to Czechoslovakia in 1949.

However, Tuchel claims that these rumors are false. "Mueller's body was already found in August 1945 in a provisional grave near the former Reich's aviation ministry by a burial commando," he said, adding that he was dressed in a general's uniform at the time of his burial. "In the inner left breast pocket was, among other things, his service certificate with a photo," he said.

Dieter Graumann, leader of the German Jewish community, naturally did not respond well to the news. "That one of the most brutal Nazi sadists is buried in a Jewish cemetery is a distasteful monstrosity. The memory of the victims is being treated here with contempt," he said.

Mueller was one of the members in attendance at the Wannsee Conference, where the Nazis came up with the infamous 'Final Solution' to exterminate the Jewish people.
