About this deal

Her grandfather had joined the Nazi Party in November 1931, well before Heinrich became eminent enough to inspire or bully his brothers into signing on.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. About the Author: Katrin Himmler is the great-niece of Heinrich Himmler, head of the SS, Gestapo and leading organiser of the Holocaust. Robert Hawks, however, wrote in The Independent: "Katrin does try to turn some equivocal evidence into revelations of her family's complicity, but her prosecutorial stance gets in the way of empathy. Katrin Himmler's cool but meticulous examination of the Himmler story reveals - in all its dark complexity - the gulf between the 'normality' of bourgeois family life and the horrors perpetrated by one member and a more nuanced portrait of Heinrich himself emerges - not a lone evil executioner, but a middle-class family man, loved and fully supported by his respectable German family.Please Note: By their very nature, all signed books will have been handled several times before they get to you.

This edition of private Himmler documents found in Israel was made in close cooperation with the filmmaker Vanessa Lapa. Yes', she stammered, at which there was a deathly hush in the classroom and the teacher, embarrassed and unsure, quickly moved the lesson on. Gebhard served in the German Army in World War I, but Heinrich, who at 18 was still an officer cadet when the war ended, was too young to see frontline service. Katrin Himmler's book Die Brüder Himmler: Eine deutsche Familiengeschichte was published in 2005 in Germany by S. Writing to Heinrich, Ernst dismissed his usefulness, knowing that he would then be reclassified and deported to a labour camp.For reasons she does not quite explain, he wanted to see if they shed light on what his father and uncle got up to while their brother was achieving notoriety. Once upon a time the Himmlers were just a normal German family, middle-class, hard-working, well-educated. In the end, The Himmler Brothers raises more questions about its subject than it is capable of answering, but that doesn't lessen in the slightest my admiration of Katrin Himmler for having written it. That she was able to take on the challenge of writing about a relative which most people would never admit to, and to do so in such a candid and objective manner is admirable.
