Heinrich Luitpold Himmler was a high-ranking German Nazi politician. He headed the Schutzstaffel . Throughout much of the war he was the second-most powerful man in Nazi Germany, having displaced Hermann G├Âring. As Reichsf├╝hrer-SS he oversaw all police and security forces including the Gestapo.

As overseer of the concentration camps, extermination camps, and Einsatzgruppen , Himmler co-ordinated the killing of millions of Jews, between 200,000 and 500,000 Roma, many prisoners of war, and perhaps another three to four million Poles, communists, or other groups whom the Nazis deemed unworthy to live or simply 'in the way', including homosexuals, and those with physical and mental disabilities. Shortly before the end of the war, he offered to surrender to the Allies if he were spared from prosecution. Nevertheless, he was arrested by British forces and committed suicide before he could be questioned.
