Reich Commissioner for the Consolidation of German Nationhood
The Reich Commissioner for the Consolidation of German Nationhood (German: Reichskommissar für die Festigung deutschen Volkstums, RKF, RKFDV) was an office in Nazi Germany which was held by Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler.
Adolf Hitler in his October 7 1939 order Erlaß des Führers und Reichskanzlers zur Festigung deutschen Volkstums ordered Himmler to carry out the following duties:
- Overseeing of the final return to the Reich of the Volksdeutche and Auslandsdeutsche (Reichsdeutsche who live abroad)
- Prevention of "harmful influence" of populations alien to the German Volkstum
- Creation of new populated areas settled by Germans, mostly by the returning ones.
