More on Paul 'Papa' Hausser:
Paul Hausser (7 October 1880 – 21 December 1972), popularly known as the Papa Hausser, was a former general in the Reichsheer and then a high-ranking commander of Nazi Germany's Schutzstaffel (SS) who played a key role in the post-war efforts by former members of the Waffen-SS to achieve historical and legal rehabilitation.
Hausser served as an officer in the Prussian Army during WWI and attained the rank of general in the inter-war Reichsheer. After retirement, he joined the SS and was instrumental in forming the Waffen-SS. During WWII, he rose to the level of army group commander. He led Waffen-SS troops in the 3rd Battle of Kharkov, the Battle of Kursk, and the Normandy Campaign. Hausser was the highest-ranking officer in the Waffen-SS alongside Sepp Dietrich. Unlike Dietrich, Hausser was a trained staff officer before joining the SS.
