    When he was captured Himmler was with Deutschland Regiment Eichenlaubtrager Heinz Macher who wrote a memoir of the incident, i thought i had it somewhere but can't find it !!!

    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Heinz Macher
    was born on 31 December 1919 in Chemnitz. Oakleaves and Close Combat Clasp in Gold, final rank SS-Sturmbannführer and Chief of the 16th SS-Kompanie of the SS Panzer-Grenadier-Regiment 3 D of the 2nd SS-Panzerdivision "Das Reich".

    Macher led a group of 15 SS specialists who were ordered by Himmler to blow up the SS castle Wewelsburg near Paderborn in order to ensure that the devotional objects and important files should not fall into the hands of the Allies. The demolition command arrived on 31 March 1945. The same day, after Macher had informed the local fire-brigade, the south-east tower, the least important tower of the large castle, was blown up. Because of lack of explosives they could not blow up the rest of the complex. Macher ordered the firemen not to extinguish the fire so that most of the complex was nevertheless destroyed.

    Macher was also charged with the task of burying the castle's treasures, including over 9,000 Death's Head rings held in a shrine to commerorate SS men killed in action. These treasures have never been found.

    Macher joined Himmler during his last days. He was captured together with him and Werner Grothmann on 21 or 22 May 1945. Macher died on 21 December 2001 in Schenefeld near Hamburg.

    Where are those rings now !!!!!!!!!!!

    This is his death mask at the IWM. When you look at him, it's hard to believe that even some of the most senior nazis were terrified of him,but, such was the power he wielded...

    Ahhh. but was that him? conspiracy theories have been around for a long time, but I read the book on Himmler's capture not so long ago, and it certainly makes you wonder ........................
