    Default Himmler Photos

    Hi Guys
    I know this is probably not the proper forum to post these ( I have posted them on the photo forum as well ) but figured I would share with the SS men who might like to see them. The reverse of the photo of him on the tennis court is said to be his handwriting, possibly the photo of him with Karl Wolff as well. Enjoy!

    Regards
    Paul

    The sinister looking photo with Himmler in the rain coat, and the phrase "polnische Wirtschaft" is fairly extraordinary, actually. Has this ever been published elsewhere? It is in the genre of the Polish campaign images of subject populations being put under the yoke, as was frequently shown in the press.

    For those of you baffled by the phrase, "polnische Wirtschaft" is a nationalistic, anti Slav comment on how screwed up Poland was recalling the period of the three way partitions of Poland in the 18th century.
    damit, basta.

    I am not positive but am under the impression that the tennis photo and photo of him with Wolff are one of a kind and have not ever been published. The story I was told was that these photos were taken from Himmler's desk from an SS man fleeing at the end of the war. The photos were then sold by the man while raising money for his daughters wedding quite a few years later.

    I wonder if anyone ever had the cahones to whip Heinrich at tennis? "Ah! Great game, Hans! Do you speak Russian, by the way? Just curious..."

    Interesting photos! I wounder what was going on there in the photo of the woman and little girl. Hard to tell if it is Himmler. His shoulder board look blank?
