Heinrich Himmler

Data de nascimento: 7. Outubro 1900
Data de falecimento: 23. Maio 1945

Heinrich Luitpold Himmler foi um Reichsführer das Schutzstaffel , e um dos principais líderes do Partido Nazi da Alemanha Nazi. Posteriormente, Adolf Hitler nomeou-o Comandante do Exército de Reserva e General Plenipotenciário para toda a administração do Reich . Himmler foi um dos homens mais poderosos da Alemanha Nazi e um dos principais responsáveis directos pelo Holocausto.

Durante a Primeira Guerra Mundial, Himmler serviu num batalhão de reserva, impedindo-o, assim, de participar mais activamente neste conflito mundial. Estudou agronomia na escola, e juntou-se ao Partido Nazi em 1923 e, dois anos mais tarde, às SS. Em 1929, foi nomeado Reichsführer-SS por Hitler. Nos 16 anos seguintes, desenvolveu as SS de um simples batalhão de 290 homens, para um grupo poderoso, com a sua própria secção militar, e, de acordo com ordens de Hitler, implementou, e controlou, os campos de concentração nazi. Ficou conhecido por ter boa capacidade de organização, e por seleccionar subordinados altamente competentes, como Reinhard Heydrich, em 1931. A partir de 1943, assumiu os cargos de Chefe da Polícia Alemã e Ministro do Interior, supervisionando toda a política interna e externa, e as forças de segurança, incluindo a Gestapo .

Em nome de Hitler, Himmler criou o Einsatzgruppen e construiu os campos de extermínio. Como facilitador e supervisor dos campos de concentração, Himmler dirigiu a morte de mais de seis milhões de judeus, entre 200 000 e 500 000 ciganos, e outras vítimas; o número total de civis mortos pelo regime é estimado entre 11 e 14 milhões. Muitos deles eram cidadãos polacos e soviéticos.

Perto do final da guerra, Hitler designou Himmler para o comando do Grupo de Exércitos Reno e do Grupo de Exércitos Vístula; contudo, não atingiu os seus objectivos e Hitler substituiu-o nestes cargos. Pouco antes do final da guerra, verificando que estava perdida, tentou encetar conversações de paz com os Aliados sem o conhecimento de Hitler. Ao saber disto, Hitler destituiu-o de todas as suas funções em Abril de 1945, e ordenou a sua prisão. Himmler tentou esconder-se, mas foi detido e depois preso pelas forças britânicas, assim que a sua identidade foi descoberta. Enquanto se encontrava detido pelo britânicos, suicidou-se no dia 23 de Maio de 1945.

Citações Heinrich Himmler

„My honor is my loyalty.“

—  Heinrich Himmler

Himmler formulated this as the watchword of the Schultzstaffel, an organization that eventually became an enormous organization ranging from the staff of the concentration camps to the Gestapo and SD, to the Waffen-SS, Hitler's personal soldiers. Above all else, Himmler and the rest of the Nazi leadership stressed the importance of loyalty to the Reich and the Fuehrer. As translated in The Origins of Totalitarianism (1951), by Hannah Arendt Ch. 10

„One basic principle must be the absolute rule for the S. S. men. We must be honest, decent, loyal, and comradely to members of our own blood and nobody else. What happens to a Russian and a Czech does not interest me in the least. What the nations can offer in the way of good blood of our type we will take, if necessary by kidnapping their children and raising them here with us. Whether nations live in prosperity or starve to death interests me only in so far as we need them as slaves for our culture: otherwise it is of no interest to me. Whether ten thousand Russian females fall down from exhaustion while digging an anti-tank ditch interests me only in so far as the anti-tank ditch for Germany is finished. We shall never be tough and heartless where it is not necessary, that is clear. We, Germans, who are the only people in the world who have a decent attitude towards animals, will also assume a decent attitude towards these human animals. But it is a crime against our blood to worry about them and give them ideals, thus causing our sons and grandsons to have a more difficult time with them. When somebody comes up to me and says: 'I cannot dig the anti-tank ditch with women and children, it is inhuman, for it would kill them,' then I have to say: 'You are the murderer of your own blood, because if the anti-tank ditch is not dug German soldiers will die, and they are the sons of German mothers. They are our own blood….“

—  Heinrich Himmler

Our concern, our duty, is our people and our blood. We can be indifferent to everything else. I wish the S.S. to adopt this attitude towards the problem of all foreign, non-Germanic peoples, especially Russians....
The Posen speech to SS officers (6 October 1943)

„I don't want to hear anymore of your difficulties. For an SS officer there are no difficulties; his duty is always to remove difficulties himself as soon as they arise. How you do it is for you to figure out, not me.“

—  Heinrich Himmler

Addressing Rudolph Höss, perhaps in July 1942, during a visit to Birkenau POW camp (Kriegsgefangenenlager), where the inmates' and guards' deficient living conditions were pointed out, from Höss's autobiography written in a Polish prison, Death Dealer: The Memoirs of the SS Kommandant at Auschwitz, pp. 286ff. (1996)

„Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA — ordinary citizens don't need guns, as their having guns doesn't serve the State.“

—  Heinrich Himmler

„It is a war of ideologies and struggle races. On one side stands National Socialism: ideology, founded on the values of our Germanic, Nordic blood. It is worth the world as we want to see: beautiful, orderly, fair, socially, a world that may be, still suffers some flaws, but overall a happy, beautiful world filled with culture, which is precisely Germany. On the other side stands the 180 millionth people, a mixture of races and peoples, whose names are unpronounceable, and whose physical nature is such that the only thing that they can do - is to shoot without pity or mercy. These animals, which are subjected to torture and ill-treatment of each prisoner from our side, which do not have medical care they captured our wounded, as do the decent men, you will see them for yourself. These people have joined a Jewish religion, one ideology, called Bolshevism, with the task of: having now Russian, half [located] in Asia, parts of Europe, crush Germany and the world. When you, my friends, are fighting in the East, you keep that same fight against the same subhumans, against the same inferior races that once appeared under the name of Huns, and later - 1,000 years ago during the time of King Henry and Otto I, - the name of the Hungarians, and later under the name of Tatars, and then they came again under the name of Genghis Khan and the Mongols. Today they are called Russian under the political banner of Bolshevism.“

Heinrich Himmler speaking in Stettin to soldiers of the SS (13 July 1941)

„The best political weapon is the weapon of terror. Cruelty commands respect. Men may hate us. But, we don't ask for their love; only for their fear.“

—  Heinrich Himmler
