Congratulated By Hitler

Post by Subcontrary » 06 Sep 2020 17:21

Hello!

I hope my recollection isn't too vague here: I remember reading about a murder committed by, I believe, two Nazi party members, perhaps SA, circa Hitler's ascent to the chancellery. I believe the murder was political in nature (or at least characterized as such after the fact) but the two were either pardoned by Hitler, or, after receiving his public congratulations on killing an "enemy of Germany," they were freed as a result of some amount of public pressure.

Does this ring any bells? My apologies again for my memory's low-resolution. Thank you for any information you can provide!
