The Totenkopf, or Death’s Head, is a symbol used by Hitler’s SS that has been adopted by neo-Nazis and Ethno-Supremacists since World War II. According to the Anti-Defamation League, During the Nazi era, Hitler’s Schutzstaffel (SS) adopted one particular Totenkopf image as a symbol. Among other uses, it became the symbol of the SS-Totenkopfverbande (one of the original three branches of the SS, along with the Algemeine SS and the Waffen SS), whose purpose was to guard the concentration camps. Many original members of this organization were later transferred into and became the core of a Waffen SS division, the 3rd SS Totenkopf Panzer Division, which engaged in a number of war crimes during World War II.
