flondrix: 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.

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.

I read a book on the SS and learned, contrary to my previous understanding, that the camps weren't just for killing people, but actually a corporate business enterprise run by Heinrich "Not such a bad guy, once you get to know him" Himmler.  It was part of an economic free-for-all that the Nazi leadership had going, with everybody try to one up the other guy, and thus,  accruing more power.  They competed for raw materials and manpower to the detriment of the overall war effort.  It was explained that Hitler had a hands off management style, concerning the economic side of things, giving vague orders on what was to be done, because he was too busy meddling on the military side.  Thus, when Hitler realized that the economy was a complete mess, he appointed Speer to straighten things out and gave him the power to do it.  Speer, then "rationalized" the economy, and economic production soared, even though German industry was under nearly constant bombardment by the Allies. Speer wasn't an economic genius, he just wasn't completely insane, like the other guys.  It's kind of frightening to imagine what could have happened if the German economy had been in the hands of somebody, who wasn't a complete lunatic, right from the start of the war.  How many more years would it have taken to defeat them.  Of course, we would have used atomic weapons on them, so maybe, not that much longer.
