millions were exterminated. Himmlers private documents were believed to be lost. But nearly seven decades after his suicide in 1945, the Lapa family has nally decided to disclose the archive. Vanessa Lapa is expected to present her debut documentary, Der Anstndige (The Decent), based on Heinrich Himmler and created with nancial support from Die Welt, in February at the Berlin International Film Festival. The set of documents, currently stored in a banks vault in Tel Aviv, covers Margarete Himmler (Image from the period from 1927 to 1945 and consists of Himmlers love letters to his wife, Margarete, the last one written a mere ve weeks before the end of the Third Reich. The collection also holds a large number of unknown photos and other less important documents such as recipe books. Allegedly, the documents were taken directly from a safe at the Himmler family home in Gmund am Tegernsee by the US soldiers who had occupied it; the papers were later obtained by Vanessa Lapas father. The authenticity of the documents has been veried by several experts, including those from the German Federal Archive

(Bundesarchiv), according to the newspaper. The handwriting in the documents has been recognized as belonging to Heinrich Himmler. Also, the letters perfectly correspond with a collection of Margarete Himmlers letters kept in the German Federal Archive. We are sure about these documents There is no reason to doubt the authenticity of the documents in Tel Aviv, Bundesarchivs President Michael Hollmann told Die Welt. According to the Berlin historian and Nazi expert, Michael Wildt, the newly revealed Himmler collection appears to be a unique source of private information from the very top of the Nazi leadership. This is because Adolf Hitler and other top members of the regime, like Hermann Gring and Joseph Goebbels, didnt leave any personal records. Therefore, according to Wildt, Himmlers voluminous collection of private documents is an outstanding discovery. It is very interesting to note that, unlike other top Nazi leaders, Himmler always preferred to keep his family out of the public eye. Hundreds of pages of personal records will contribute countless details, not only of Heinrich Himmler himself, but also perhaps on the very nature of Nazism itself.

The whole world is FED-UP with the tale of the "holocaust" ;, alleged and never demonstrated gas chambers, skin made lamps, water vapuor killing machines and all the other horric hollywood garbage set up with the help of the criminal zio Ilya Ehrenberg just to justify "israel" and its criminals. What is true, and what these jews want to hide is the HAAVARA pact, signed with German government in the 40s. In order to delete memory of this pact, many Germans -and even some zionist, well-aware of the pact- have been exterminated at the 3end of the war.

The operational architect of the HOLOCAUST mass murder was Himmler who wanted to please Adolf who required slave-labour for industrial production purposes; but not exclusively. This point was made in HITLERS WAR by David Irving who was vilied as a suspected Holocaust " denier". Any aspect or misrepresentation can unleash a torrent of abuse. History needs to get near the truth if possible.
