Sorry on Number four i believe that the Gestapo's job was to watch over and to eliminate all the enemies of the party and the Socialist state as well as disintegrating forces of all kinds directed against both.

Great job answering all the questions thoroughly. I have a problem with number four though because you did not really answer the question. Your answer was more of who the Gestapo was instead of what were their duties.
