The shame seems understandable from Katrin Himmler's own father's perspective as he is one of the children born to these brothers. It shows the relationship and set of circumstances after WW1 that brought Hitler and his gang of criminals to power ! 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. 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. I would say this is a must read ,and could be used in schools as part of the curriculum when teaching what intolerance leads to , Fascists whichever colour , pray on ignorance and the ignorant to further their ends ,it should be noted that both the Hitler family and the Himmler family were both Catholic and much of their influences originated from that belief system , it is shown that Heinrich in particular was very pious ,although not necessarily the dominant one in his early life , he very often scolded his brothers for minor insurrections and also had an inferiority complex due to being weak due to illness ,he was also very poor at sport as a result , I think in later life he just wanted to Be Somebody ,and with the ingrained militarism and religious background of the family we all know which path he chose .

She is the granddaughter of Ernst Himmler (1905–1945), who was the younger brother of Heinrich Himmler, one of the leading figures of Nazi Germany. In the latter part of the book it is almost fitting that we discover her partner is Jewish and they have a half-Jewish child. This riveting family memoir provides essential new information on the private life and background of one of the twentieth- century’s most notorious killers – not a lone evil executioner, but a middle-class family man, loved and fully supported by his respectable German family. This is a very well-written and profoundly honest story of the family of a monster - but an ordinary man who lived in extraordinary times. Heinrich Himmler's own legitimate daughter does not seem to be ashamed of her heritage - the two illegimate children born to his mistress are wiped from the family tree so it is possible that they never took their father's name.

You are the grandniece of Heinrich Himmler, the second most powerful Nazi and one of the biggest war criminals ever.

You get a vivid sense of a particular kind of German conservatism and of how, weirdly, it found an outlet in the upstart, part-pagan thuggery of Nazisim . Katrin Himmler is a freelance author, holding readings and lectures in Germany and abroad, above all for students. 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. Her book “Die Brüder Himmler” was published in 2005 and translated into English in 2007, ‘The Himmler Brothers’ (Pan Macmillan), it has been translated into more than ten languages. I commend her for moving forward and telling the back story to Himmler that no one other then a relative could possibly tell.About the Author: Katrin Himmler is the great-niece of Heinrich Himmler, head of the SS, Gestapo and leading organiser of the Holocaust. Please Note: By their very nature, all signed books will have been handled several times before they get to you.

Fischer Verlag and in 2007 in English by Macmillan as The Himmler Brothers: A German Family History. There are parallels , extremism ,this time of a religious nature is rearing its ugly head again throughout the world ,again ordinary well educated individuals are having their minds poisoned by a few who simply want power for themselves ,collectively we have the power to nip it in the bud and banish it forever , but do we have the courage ? I bought this book having seen the author on a television programme about the family members of the most notorious Nazis. She is the author of Die Brüder Himmler: Eine deutsche Familiengeschichte, published in English as The Himmler Brothers: A German Family History.It also offers a unique account of one women’s courageous attempt to deal with her chilling inheritance. Bookplates are official labels which are signed by the author and then fixed to the title page of the book. This young woman had to endure the embarrassment of being asked such a question in her history class as a 15 year old; she cannot be blamed for what has happened - that's an accident of birth.
