The Holocaust
His thoughts on the Jewish faith
Lets go back to when it all began in 1933, when Adolf Hitler was leader of Nazi Germany. Not many lived to tell the tale of what happened with 2/3rds of the jewish faith exterminated. But those who did survive, tell us about the horrors. At first those of the Jewish relegion could not get accepted to any schools, and had a hard time finding jobs, then the concentration camps. Jews were taken from there homes, forced to give up any personal belongings they had on them, and taken to these camps. With barbed wire fences and round the clock guards, this was more like prison. The unlucky members of these camps were forced to work, or worse.
There were many different concentration camps throughout nazi germany, many areas to work in, and sadly, to many ways to die. Some people were used to test drugs on, others were simply shot or sent to a gas chamber. Heinrich Himmler was the one who was responsible for the gas chambers. He thought Nazi Germany needed a faster way to exterminate jews then just by shooting them. Many innocent people died because of Heinrich and Hitler horrifying ideas. Who are they to decide who is superior and who isnt? And with Hitler dead, someone must be put to justice.
In one of Himmlers speeches he said what Joachim Fest describes as "one of the most horrifying testaments in the german language". He said " I am talking about the evacuation of the Jews, the extermination of the Jewish people. It is one of those things that is easily said. The Jewish people is being exterminated, every Party member will tell you, its perfectly clear, it's part of our plans, we're eliminating the Jews, exterminating them, a small matter." Its amazing how he can speak about killing so many people and not think that its a problem.

Heinrich Himmler
Heinrich Himmler is on the run and was last seen in a disguise. Although Adolf Hitler is mostly responsible for this event, this man is to be blamed for the mass murder of Jews, or what we call the Holocaust. He established and oversaw concentration camps where many people of the Jewish religion were held, and later on killed. Authorities believe this man was working alongside Adolf Hitler, helping scheme up ways to kill over 6 million Jews. This was during an event we know as "the final solution". Heinrich is one of Hitler's most loyal men, with reports saying he called him "der treue Heinrich", or loyal Heinrich. Heinrich is also a fanatic racist, and one of the most cold-blooded Nazis we have ever seen.
Heinrich Himmler was born on october 7th 1900. He has worked his way up the government system having many different rankings. We advise you to take caution if you see him. He has an extensive record of police work and may be armed. He has been working for the Nazi party since 1929 but was expelled from the Nazi party in 1943, hurting many people during his time of authority. He tried to secretely negotiate germanys surrender to save himself even though he was the head of the entire Nazi police force and one of Hitlers most loyal men. This man will not come in willingly. He has a wife and child but being caught is not an option. Please help bring this man to justice, and pray for the families of all the lives lost.
