List of members and officials of the German Nazi Party in the years leading up to and comprising World War II. This list includes all Nazi Party members who held significant titles, ranks or occupations within the party between the years 1920 (when the Nazi Party was founded) and 1945, when the Second World War ended and the Nazi Party was dissolved.
NOTE: The list does not include Nazi leaders and officials from satellite parties created following WWII, such as the American Neo-Nazi organization. It also leaves out individuals associated with Nazism, but who were not ranking members of the party, such as Leni Riefenstahl.
Many of these leaders of the Nazi Party never attained the infamy and notoriety of iconic Nazi officials such as Reinhard Heydrich (chief of the Reich Main Security Office, which included the Gestapo) or propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels. Nevertheless, students of 20th Century European History - and World War II in particular - may find this collection of Nazi leadership helpful, detailing the top Nazi leaders and top Nazi officials.
