Er kam am 27. November1875 in Günzburg an der Donau im bayerischen Schwaben zur Welt, besuchte das Gymnasium und wurde 1900 Verwaltungsbeamter in München. Am Ersten Weltkrieg nahm er als Soldat teil. 1922 trat er der Hitlerbewegung bei. Nach dem Hitlerputsch vom November 1923 dienstentlassen, übernahm er die Leitung der Finanzen der NS-Ersatzorganisation "Großdeutsche Volksbewegung". Nach wiederbegründung der NSDAP 1925 wurde er Reichsschatzmeister, was er bis 1945 blieb. 1933 zog Hitlers "alter Kämpfer" in den Reichstag ein. 1935 wurde er Reichsleiter, 1943 ehrenhalber zum SS-Obergruppenführer ernannt. Er starb am 2 Dezember 1947 im amerikanischen Konzentrationslager Regensburg. Posthum wurde er im folgenden Jahr von einer Spruchkammer als "Hauptschuldiger" eingestuft, was für die Familie den Einzug des Vermögens zur Folge hatte.

Franz Xaver Schwarz (1875-1947) was Treasurer of the Nazi Party. Schwarz was born and educated to a high school level in Guenzburg. Serving as a military clerk and a municipal official in Munich before serving in World War I, Schwarz joined the Nazi Party in 1922. He was part of the Old Guard from Hitler's early days in Munich. By 1925 he assumed his role as National Treasurer of the Nazi Party. Elected to the Reichstag as a representative of Franconia in 1933, Schwarz was named a Reich Leader in 1935. Honored with the rank of SS-Obergruppenfuhrer in 1943, Schwarz died in an internment camp in 1947. He was posthumously classified as a Major Offender by a Munich de-Nazification court in 1948.

And somebody doesn't seem to know the difference between a concentration camp and an extermination camp! Not all concentration camps were extermination camps. :?

I just read your old post about Schwarz. I have a color pencil portrait of him done in 1944. He is in uniform. I will have to find it again. It was given to my grandfather a friend of his. Both were in Regensburg detention camp in 1947.
I am located in West Teaxs

Schwarz too lived in a Degano villa-chalet in Gmund-Sankt Quiren literally around the corner and up the hill from Himmler's Degano home and Amman's Degano home whilst not visting the Fuehrer in his Degano home. The nexus has been so elusive. Any Third Reich architectural historians out there?
