The SS Main Economic and Administrative Office , abbreviated SS-WVHA, was a Nazi organization responsible for managing the finances, supply systems and business projects for the Allgemeine-SS. It also ran the concentration camps and was instrumental in the implementation of the Final Solution through such subsidiary offices as the Concentration Camps Inspectorate and SS camp guards.
SS-Obergruppenführer Oswald Pohl worked with Walther Funk, Reich Minister of Economics , to oversee financial aspects of the Final Solution, the most deadly phase of The Holocaust. Valuables such as gold watches, rings, even tooth fillings, glasses, and currency were taken from the inmates on arrival at the death camps. These items were then sent back to Berlin in WVHA-marked crates for processing at the Reichsbank, under its director Emil Puhl. Between August 1942 and January 1945, a total of 76 WVHA transports arrived in Berlin.
