Emil Maurice

Emil Maurice (19 January 1897 – 6 February 1972) was an early member of the NSDAP, a participant in the Munich Putsch, an editor of Mein Kampf, and an early member and officer of the Sturmabteilung (SA) and the Schutzstaffel (SS). He was Hitler's first personal chauffeur. Later, Maurice was a Reichstag member. From 1940 to 1942, he served in the Luftwaffe as an officer.

Maurice had some Jewish ancestry, with his great-grandfather being Jewish. Wikipedia claims that Himmler wanted to expel Maurice from the SS for this, but that Hitler refused.

After the war, in 1948, he was sentenced to four years in a labor camp and had 30% of his assets confiscated
