Heinrich Himmler after his alleged suicide on May 23, 1945 while in British custody

The photo above was sent to me by Gasan, a reader of my blog, who believes that Himmler was murdered and that the photo above shows that Himmler’s nose had been broken.  Heinrich Himmler was captured by British troops on May 21, 1945 and was “silenced permanently” two days later, according to one of the documents shown below.  You can read the full story on the website of British historian David Irving here.

Gasan was alerted to a name, in the documents shown on Irving’s web site, which attracted his attention:  Robert Bruce Lockhart.   Gasan sent me the photos of the documents which I have posted below. Himmler is referred to as “Little H.”  Hitler was the big H.

Letter from Brendan Bracken

This following information was sent to me by Gasan, who gave me permission to post it on my blog:

This is regarding the “suicide” of Heinrich Himmler. The comments regarding Bruce Lockhart are mine. I was portrayed in some old Soviet movies back in the 1970s. That is how I recognized the name right away.

Bruce Lockhart, KCMG? What a small world!  The guy who plotted to kill Lenin in 1918. What a coincidence!

Lenin had withdrawn Russia from World War I, a war of first cousins, because he was busy with the fratricidal civil war in Russia. The Jew Lenin (Ulyanov-Blank) was lost between two Jew-Bank establishments, which could not decide which country should be destroyed first: Germany or Russia. Lenin’s handlers believed that it should be Germany, but Lockhart’s handlers believed it should be Russia. That is why Lockhart was appointed as a Vice-Consul to Moscow.

Is this why the limeys (the British) were so afraid of Himmler being interrogated by the Americans? Would Himmler have been able to reveal some embarrassing information?

World War I was a “war of cousins” because King George V of England, Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany and Tsar Nicholas II of Russia were all first cousins.

This information about Lockhart was copied from Wikipedia:

In 1918, Bruce Lockhart and fellow British agent, Sidney Reilly, were dramatically implicated in a plot to assassinate Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin. He was accused of plotting against the Bolshevik regime and, for a time during 1918, was confined in the Kremlin as a prisoner and condemned to death. However, his life was spared in an exchange of “secret agents” for the Russian diplomat Maksim Maksimovich Litvinov.

He later wrote about his experiences in his 1932 autobiographical book, Memoirs of a British Agent which became an instant worldwide hit, and was made into the 1934 film British Agent by Warner Brothers.
