Professor Walther Wüst, Rector of the University of Munich, left, under whom Monshizadeh studied at the Iranology department, wearing the uniform of a Standartenfuhrer, or SS Colonel. As well as being an academic and in the SS, he worked variously for the Sicherheitsdienst or SD (SS Security Department), ensured that Hans and Sophie Scholl (The White Rose resistance group) were arrested and handed to the Gestapo, and was president of the SS-Ahnenerbe, right. He tried to persuade Himmler to sanction a trip to Iran to study the Behistun inscription, in the search of Aryan roots but it never got off the ground.

Wüst played a leading role in the management of universities in Nazi Germany. Wüst participated in the development and spread of Nazi propaganda in the Middle East, which attempted to make Arabs and Muslims sympathetic to Adolf Hitler.

Wüst died in Munich on 21 March 1993.

Davud Monshizadeh (1914 – 1989) was an Iranian Nazi, the founder of SUMKA (the "Iranian National Socialist Workers Party"), and a supporter of Nazism in Germany during World War II and in Iran after the war. He was a member of the SS and worked as a Nazi radio propagandist in Germany.

Monshizadeh was known as an admirer of Hitler and imitated many of the ways of the National Socialist German Workers Party (such as their militarism and salute), as well as attempting to approximate Hitler's physical appearance, including his moustache.

He is buried at Uppsala Old Cemetery, Sweden.
