B.B.C. Article
Chilling details have emerged about the daily life of Heinrich Himmler, the Nazi SS chief who sent millions of Jews to their deaths in the Holocaust.

The German tabloid Bild is serialising excerpts from Himmler's wartime diaries, recently discovered in Russia.
One day, Himmler wrote, he had a massage before ordering the execution of 10 Poles. And he says he enjoyed a snack at Buchenwald concentration camp.
He also told the SS to train dogs that could "rip people apart" at Auschwitz.
Historians will publish the diaries in a book next year, with background notes.

Well, I don't think Stern, The Sunday Times and Newsweek are involved. :grin:

Doesn't seem to be comparable to the Hitler scam:

Historians had earlier examined Himmler's diaries from the years 1941, 1942 and 1945 - but they were unaware of the missing ones until recently.


Goebbels' diaries have long been well known.
