Abstract This document is a provisional edition of a series of detailed organizational charts of the RSHA, the "overall intelligence and police security organization for Germany" (p. 1). The charts are not complete insofar as they lack names for all but the head positions, but they are informative as to the internal organization of the RSHA and the areas of responsibility apportioned to each sub-agency. This document is a typewritten lithographic copy made on high quality, heavyweight paper. The text itself is sometimes difficult to read because of an imperfect original, but the document itself is in excellent condition.
