(Heinrich Himmler: Biographie) [EBOOK/PDF] â Peter Longerich
Color Atlas of Human Anatomy, Vol. 3 Nervous System and Sensory Organs eA man with a very complex character Far from stupid and certainly not unintelligent he seems to have been a very opinionated individual with a multi layered personality Anxtremely organised person he was able to adapt and The Facial Nerve even change his actions according to what he felt was needed or demanded by Hitler withoutver losing view of his New Europe ideal and final objective This is in many ways a double biography that of Heinrich Himmler on the one hand and that of the SS on the other For the Himmler reorganised his Surgery for Cochlear and Other Auditory Implants elite police force and the state which it patrolled the he needed to be in constant touch with it as anntity Himmler himself was the SS the very Uncommon Leadership: How to Build Competitive Advantage by Thinking Differently embodiment of Terror itself The SS in its turn was Himmler the physical representation of his darkest most ambitious thoughtsWithin thever changing boudaries of Himmler s ver changing thoughts we are also introduced to the diverse aspects and origins of the Final Solution where it came from how it took form and how it volved An Multichannel Marketing Ecosystems excellent read for anyone interested in the inner workings of Hitler s Germany and the individuals who made the wheels go round and of course anyone who is interested in Holocaust topics or the SS as the terror machine that it was There are plenty of opportunities for further reading from this book and it includes anxtensive bibliography and notes section The biography and History presented in this book is however as complex as Himmler himself and therefore I would not advise this to newcomers of Third Reich history As a student of Nazi Germany this book is a very detailed account of the rise of one of the leading Nazi Party members during the 1920s and 1930s I Extending Symfony 2 Web Application Framework enjoyed the chapters so far on Himmler s childhood and how he became involved in the Nazi Party And ultimately his rise to become Reichsfuher SS after overcoming political opposition from Frick and Goring when he took control of the police in both Germany and Prussia in which Goring originally had control but Himmler managed to gradually take over affairs in Prussia And Frick had his own ambitions of creating a state police force as well This book is not a book one can pick up and read in one sitting It is a book that will need to be read a few times for all the detailed information to be fully absorbedSo far I have learnt that Himmler was a complex man with many hidden layers but also a veryffective administrator who cleverly used his network of contacts to gain control of the reigns of security and police apparatus in Germany I am now starting to read all about Protective Custody Having successfully gained the approval and authority from Hitler who appointed Himmler as Reichsfuher SS in June 1936 I will be Angels Whiskey eager to learn how Himmler went about implementing his Protective Custody policies and how Himmler goes on to consolidate his grip on power With a few days off work I will definitely be reading of this fascinating and very detailed book I give up I surrender I got to page 602 of this 1050 pae book and I simply could not proceed onward It s flat out BORING Ixpected to learn gripping intimate details on Himmler the SS Himmler and Hitler and Instead I was deluged with numbers and statistics with resettlement in towns and provinces too numerous to mention Oh God it was so boring Okay so Himmler started out as a uiet youth unable to deal with females which made him a prude until he was married in his mid 20s and which later made him legislate morality to his SS troops He had to approve ach 20s and which later made him legislate morality to his SS troops He Had To Approve Each Marriage Personally I Learned He Got to approve ach marriage personally I learned he got degree in agriculture and spent some time working in the field before somehow rising to be the head of the SS I never figured out how that happened At some point he s working closely with Hitler we re never given a good let alone any picture of Hitler in this book yet there are absolutely no details at all as to how they met when they met where they met what lead Hitler to promote this loser to such a vital role There s nothing there It boggles the mind We learn about Himmer s hundreds of associates underlings and nemies The name dropping is so intense it s a wonder one can remember any names from the book at all Now the book does detail Himmler s vaguely anti Semitic views in college his vision of a pure German nation his grand visions of resettling Europe and ventually ridding Europe and Russia of all Jews However it s hard to connect the dots How does he go to looking down his nose at Jews to wanting to xterminate all of them and how does he get tens of thousands of men under his command to murder them I still don t know Apparently the goal was to relocate the Jews first to Madagascar and then later to Poland and Russia How did that turn into mass murders Also Himmler was apparently as opposed to the Christian church as he was to the Jews particularly the Catholics of which he was raised But he felt like he couldn t act on that because Hitler didn t want to persecute the Christians That

Heinrich Himmler s behavior during his final days is full of contradictions Unlike other prominent Nazis he had not taken his own lifebut rather gone into hiding although in such an amateurish manner that he and those with him were bound to be caught at some point When he fell into Allied hands he made sure they knew who he was and yet then vaded responsibility through suicide The fact that he acted in this way and not in accordance with the virtues of an SS officer he perpetually preachedwas to disillusion his men deeply and result in the posthumous reputation of the Reichsf hrer SS remaining largely negative Trickle Down Tyranny: Crushing Obama's Dream of the Socialist States of America even among former adherents In the post war years no Himmler legend was waiting to be bornIn May 1945 Himmler had simply been absorbed into the flood of millions of refugees and soldiers Hisnd appears as puzzling as his career in the service of National Socialism How could such a banal personality attain such a historically uniue position of power How could the son of a prosperous Bavarian Catholic public servant become the organizer of a system of mass murder spanning the whole of Europe Peter Longerich Heinrich HimmlerI sort of wished I had taken a picture of my wife s face when I lifted using my legs not my back because this thing s heavy Peter Longerich s Heinrich Himmler from the box in which it was delivered It is roughly the size of a toaster and the cover is adorned with a crisp black and white picture of a weak chinned Nazi with rimless specs and a death s head The Pocket Wife emblazoned on his cap I suspect she would ve been happier to see me haul out back issues of Jugs rather than this monstrous tome devoted to a monstrous twit My wife s furrowed brow asked the silent uestion that you may ask yourself when confronted with this book at your local bookseller Do I really need to read a huge 750 pages of text 200 pages ofndnotes biography about a hateful little henchman who presided over the deaths of millions of innocent people The answer of course depends on how invested you are in the history of the Second World War But The Color of Our Sky even the most ravenous student might hesitate slightly at Longerich s full dress treatmen Heinrich Himmler The name itself brings a shudder to one This man worked toxterminate groups to nforce a foolish racial theory and maintain the Nazi society thro0ugh terror The book has one animating uestion Page 3 How could such a banal personality attain such a historically uniue position of power The aim of the biography itself is Page 3 to penetrate as far as possible the mystery of this man s personality and the motives underlying his monstrous deedsThe book begins with an xamination of his family background and his youth Certainly there is not much there to Obsession explain how he became one of Hitler s stalwarts later on Thearly chapters Cabaret: A Roman Riddle explore hisffort to make a career in the agricultural realm it also traces his rise in the Nazi Party becoming an important figure in the SS Many of the major conflicts of the time swirled around Himmler At one point he was friendly toward Rohm head of the SA later he was involved in destroying the SAIssues discussed in the book How Himmler became closer to Hitler and used Hitler s power as a way of increasing his own How Himmler developed strange and unscientific studies of race and then tried to impose his views on people of many backgrounds Especially nlightening is his ffort to define people in other countries as German if so they were to be treated as if they were a part of the master race Others To use a phrase showing up in another book the worthless aters were not to of the master race Others To use a phrase showing up in another book the
Worthless Eaters Were Not eaters were not given sustenance or as the war dragged on and atrocities mounted xterminated The SS devised a network of agents to All Roads Lead Home ensure security in Nazi Germany and in the occupied areas Over the course of the war Himmler s forces not just the SS but many other organizations and security agencies as well became repressive and willing to inflict punishmentOf course central to the story of Himmler is his increasing push towardlimination of Jews as he worked with Hitler and others to develop a final solution to the Jewish problem Policy moved from discrimination and violence against Jews to setting up ghettoes to forced labor to concentration camps and finally mass killings The details of the story leisurely developed over a series of chapters is truly chillingThe book also speaks to the battles Himmler waged with others for the ar of Hitler and for power He feuded with the Wehrmacht and developed the Waffen SS as the military arm of the SS Indeed he ven assumed military command to little good ffect near the nd of the war His last days and death are recordedThere is a final brief chapter that tries to pull various threads together to analyze his role in the history of Nazi Germany To my The Mephisto Threat (Paul Tallis eye it is a bit brief but it does a fine job of trying to make sense of Heinrich Himmler All in all an important work Unfortunately we re still waiting for the definitive biography of Himmler one of the most mysterious figures of the Third Reich While Longerich fairly ably covers thevents of Himmler s life and career there are vast mpty spaces For xample he never deals with Himmler s relationship to and with Hitler which simply boggles Himmler s development into an important figure in the Nazi party or less simply occurs at one moment Himmler is uietly raising chickens and dabbling in right wing politics at the next he s the head of
the SSHuge gaps of this sort make this book far less important than it might have been the way is still SSHuge gaps of this sort make this book far less important than it might have been the way is still for someone in the future to reveal this bizarre and horrible figure in all his complexityThe conversion to Kindle is very good the translation to English is a bit toneless A book that for me was a disappointment Probably on me for having the wrong xpectations of what the author. Biografia jednej z najbardziej przerażających a jednocześnie najbardziej tajemniczych postaci hitlerowskiego imperiumJak to możliwe że wywodzący się z katolickiej rodziny niepozorny i zakompleksiony człowiek zmienił się w monstrum odpowiedzialne za zagładę niezliczonych ludzkich istnień Jak to możliwe że ktoś o tak banalnej osobowości jak Himmler rozszerzał zakres swojej władzy począwszy od SS przez Gestapo i policję aż do stanowiska ministra spraw wewnętrznych i dowódcy armii z morderczą precyzją planując kolejne zbrodnie na niewyobrażalną skalęW pierwszej tak obszernej i szczegółowej biografii Heinricha Himmle. Was trying to accomplish Some interesting biographical information on Himmler the youth but as the book progressed there was not a whole bunch on his interaction with Hitler ven in the pre power days I learned that Himmler was originally from the Gregor Strasser wing of the Party and that both Strasser and Rohm were considered mentors to Himmler That did not do Just Cause either much good as the Himmler SS settled old scores for the Nazi party byxecuting both amongst otherson the Night of the Long Knives The author delved uite deeply into the structure of the SS that Himmler created and how he managed to incrementally assume a greater control over the police functions of the Nazi state but tended to gloss over the personal interactions that certainly played a large role in the Himmler grab for power Relationship with Goring dealt with Yes but for me in a superficial way The SS originally being a part of the SA and his relationship with Rohm Hardly dealt with at all Lots of mention of Heydrich but again no real feel for how that relationship impacted the human disaster that both men had such a large role in creating Wannsee Conference Hardly touched Eichmann Hardly mentioned And of course the relationship of Himmler and Hitler should be central to any discussion of Himmler The author posits that Himmler was indeed afraid of Hitler and makes realistic assumptions about instructions that Himmler received from Hitler on the vast crimes that Himmler committed against humanity Even the Holocaust created by Himmler and his henchmen for me just was not dealt with in a way that shed any light or new facts on Himmler s roleHimmler s attempt to scape the responsibilities for his action by reaching out to the western powers and to Jewish leaders is given in my opinion short shrift If you want to study the hierarchical structure of the SS and the Nazi police state this book will be helpful For those looking for a political book about the Himmler life look lsewhere The book is ssential reading in several respects First it illustrates the absolute incoherence of the concept of race Second it illustrates the dangers of allowing power and authority to develop outside the rule of law which was in a nutshell what the SS was Thirdly it illustrates the inhumanity and unfeasibility of social ngineering projects g large scale shifts in populations and borders Fourthly it conveys in minute detail the decision making involved in the unfolding of the Holocaust with no vagueness or hyperbole Lastly it provides a compelling portrait of how vil both individual and collective can volve from mediocrity and ambition I could see this book being included in a number of different history political science and sociology courses huge book well organized and thorough I just looked for a few specific things relevant to my novel found them Excepting the description of his youth this is not a normal biography of its subject nor does it give an outline of the war in Europe and Africa readers are xpected to know that Instead the focus of this lengthy text is on how Himmler rose through party ranks and accreted power Much attention is given to the various shufflings and reshufflings of the organizations and institutions under his authorityA subsidiary theme is the holocaust or properly of how Nazi race theory was implemented with increasing severity against undesirable populations Here Himmler played a if not the major role Author Longerich treats this controversial matter carefully presenting a picture of a reactive ver changing set of policiesDetailed and very well documented this book is strongly recommended to serious students of the war PS Again the date started field below is not functioning In fact the reading of this tome took almost a week I have been interested in the Third Reich for many years and whilst We All Know Who Heinrich all know who Heinrich was I have long thought that he deserved much serious study than he still seems to receive In this book Peter Longerich confidently rises to the challenge We see Himmler as the young man the outsider Himmler as the man haunted by the fact that he missed out on being able to fight in the Great War and ager to make an impact of his own in whatever way on the future We see Himmler as what could and often is described as the Fiesta Moon effecient bureaucrat restructuring government offices We see Himmler as Reichsf hrer SS in charge of the Reich s police and later as Reich Minister of the Interior with which by thend of the war he literally had a finger in very piePerhaps most importantly we see Himmler as a prime xample of how an individual can act once he or she is put in a position of Power Himmler The Taste of Night experiencedarly adulthood in that curious time frame located between the nd of WWI and the Great Depression of the 1930s when strong opinions about political conomic and social reordoring abounded and not just in Germany A member of the Nazi Party from the very beginning Himmler progressively found himself in a position to make his own thoughts of how Europe should look a reality and he was willing to use any means at his disposal to complete his mission Hence in his position as Reichsf hrer SS and later also as Reich Minister of the Interior Himmler was able to implement many of his actions Always conscious that he needed to obtain permission from his F hrer he seems to have been able in some
