I am not going to say too much about Margareta Maria Gallinat. Suffice to say she sought employment abroad, to terrorize innocent citizens.
She was born in Ragnitz, on the 16th of OCtober 1894. Rotsche Bach, Hamar.
In April 1940, Gallinat read a newspaper ad for Aufseherin and decided to apply. Two months later she started in Ravensbrück,where she worked until the summer of 1943, eventually becoming deputy Oberaufseherin.
From September 1943 to 1 July 1944 , she was appointed SS-Oberaufseherin in the Vught transit camp and served as head of the Female Prisoners’ Division.
There are no records of what crimes she has committed, but at least 749 men, women and children died in Vught aka Herzogenbusch due to hunger, sickness and abuse. Of those, 329 were murdered at the execution site just outside the camp.
Margarete was complicit in these crimes. She applied for the position, initially in Ravensbrück, later in Vught.
