Siegfried Kasche was born on June 18, 1903.
In 1932 he commanded SA Gruppe Ostland. After "The night of the long knives", Göring spared his live, and release him.

He was leader of SA Gruppe Hansa from 1937-41, and from '41 till '45 German ambassador in Croatia. He was executed in Yugoslavia in 1947.
