Abstract This brief summarizes the early campaigns of terror, murder, torture, and imprisonment conducted by the Nazis to purge Germany of political opposition. The "Roehm putsch," as the Nazis called the three days of murder during the summer of 1934, receives particular attention, as do the legislative measures instituted by the Nazis to criminalize all forms of opposition, including the formation of political parties. This document is a typewritten copy.
