“The Faithful Heinrich”: Himmler’s Relationship with Hitler



  • He was never involved with Nazi Party policy-making decisions in the years leading up to the seizure of power
  • He was second-in-command of the SS, then Reichsfuhrer-SS, and then just a message-reporter to Hitler
  • He wanted to succeed Hitler
  • Hitler thought that Himmler’s mystic interests were nonsense
  • He was never a member of Hitler’s inner circle
  • When he learned that Hitler planned to die in Berlin, he left his leader to try to save himself.
