This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - German Military Leaders - Heinrich Himmler. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Heinrich Himmler was a politician, police administrator, and military commander who rose through the ranks quickly to became the second most powerful man in the Third Reich. Himmler was a highly effective administrator and a ruthless and adroit power seeker who was slavishly devoted to Hitler until the final weeks of the war.
He combined a penchant for philosophical mysticism with a cold-blooded, fanatical adherence to Nazi racist ideology in his role as the prime architect of the Holocaust. In the final months of the war, Himmler suffered increasingly from psychosomatic illnesses and was progressively shunted aside by Hitler’s entourage.
In April 1945, it became known that Himmler hoped to succeed Hitler and that he had negotiated with Swedish Count Folke Bernadotte for surrender terms to the Western Allies that would include an alliance against the Soviet Union. Hitler promptly stripped Himmler of all offices and ordered his arrest. Disguised as a common soldier, Himmler attempted to escape. Captured by the Western Allies, he committed suicide by taking poison.
