"In August 1941, Himmler attended the shooting of 100 Jews at Minsk. Nauseated and shaken by the experience, he was concerned about the impact such actions would have on the mental health of his SS men. He decided that alternate methods of killing should be found."

That's the real reason for the fuzzy bunnies; to console those poor, soft-hearted SS guys.

zimbomba63: JohnAnnArbor: Here's Himmler on take-your-kid-to-work day.  At a concentration camp:

Little Gudrun is still alive, still thinks Daddy was a great guy.

From what I read, old Heinrich, only visited a concentration camp once.  On that occasion, they were to execute somebody, maybe in honor of his visit, with a pistol shot to the back of the head.  The execution proceeded and some of the guy's brains landed on Himmler's boot.  Per the book, this upset Himmler so badly, that he had to be carried from the scene.  I had always thought of Himmler as some kind of a sadist, but, it turns out that he was just a pencil-pusher, who was more than happy to order the death of millions, just as long as he didn't have to see any of the nastiness.


Well its no big secret that Himmler was a closet homosexual, so I'm sure it just bothered him to no end that he had to be carried by some tall strong straping young SS men

This, and I've read, that they had no problems with mass shootings of Eastern Jews, but, some of them, were balking over having to shoot German Jews.  So see, even homicidal maniacs draw the line somewhere.

Also, I'm surprised no one ever came forward, to say what a great boss he was to work for, like the idiot, who was Mengele secretary, who insisted he was a genius and was the best boss, because he never forgot her birthday or some such shiat.

Funny you should mention that, considering their history.

How come Hitler and his cronies had such a hard on for tall, blonde Aryan supermen when the were dark, scrawny little wimps who looked like child-molesters?

Um, rabbits are one of the cheaper commercial sources of fur (usually dyed to look like other kinds nowadays).  Since rabbits are already raised commercially in many places, and are easy to breed, I wonder why it would have taken a special nazi project to provide rabbit fur for warm military uniforms--couldn't they just have contracted existing livestock farmers to produce it for them?

That would be the easy way, and no government ever does anything the easy way.

If I recall how it was going correctly, there were three problems with mass shootings:

1. The regular army guys didn't think it was honorable, and were getting demoralized doing it
2. The brownshirts liked it too much and were getting out of hand.
3. It left a series of mass graves that were too easy for the partisans to find/exploit

The camps more or less solved all three problems.

dv-ous: This text is now purple: Jesus the Nazis were weird.

That's the kind of thing that happened in WWII. Every. Last. Resource. a nation could bring to bear was directed at the war effort.


It amazes me to this day to what extraordinary lengths all nations went to to improve their chances of victory. I mean things like thousands of man hours at some oddly obscure task that had a slim chance of slightly affecting the war. I don't see it as madness but rather an impressive diligence and thoroughness to an important task.

Based on what they had been ordered to do, one shudders to think, what the term, "getting out of hand" implies.  I, also, believe that they realized that an "asset" was being wasted by shooting people en mass and dumping them into pits, when you could work them to death and profit handsomely, thus, the "death factory" system.

I like this thread because a lot of whats being said here relates to the books I'm currently reading by Philip Kerr: "Prague Fatale" and "A Man Without Breath". Already read Prage which was good. I'm about 50 pages or so into Without Breath and it's touchingon a lot of historical facts. Really good series of books.

These books are about breeding rabbits?  I can see one book on the subject, but, two, isn't that overkill?
