After lying around in a
Tel Aviv apartment collecting dust for dozens of years, hundreds of
personal letters, pictures and secret journals belonging to Heinrich
Himmler, the architect of the Final Solution, have been revealed.
The revealing documents,
stored in Israeli painter Chaim Rosenthal's apartment, show how on one
hand the top Nazi official used an iron fist to send Jews to their
death, and on the other hand had a soft touch when dealing with his
family, even in the shadow of the mass murder happening around him.
