It was from David Irving’s archives on his website. You can find them, and alot of other stuff pertaining to Himmler here!
Some points of notice in his diaries:
- She always addresses Heinrich as either ‘H.’ or ‘Heini’ lol
- Gudrun is always called ‘puppi’ (little…
Oh, you can also notice Marga was always concerned about his husband. And when he was at home she was suddenly happy (although, Himmler working even in his free day upset her a lot)…
One of my faves entries says: “H. is now coming for sure on July 2. It will be 3 beautiful days”
I then ask her if she knew the activities of her husband in his capacity of chief of the secret police. She answers ‘certainly’.
‘And do you know the opinion which the world holds of him?’ ‘I also know this,’ she answers. ‘But I also know that before the war my husband was held by many in the highest consideration.’ ‘And after the war? Don’t you think that he became the man most deeply hated by humanity?’ She shrugs her shoulders a little and says: ‘Perhaps, it is the destiny of all policemen to have heaped on them the hate of man, and my husband was a policeman.’
And in pronouncing these last words there seemed to come to the surface from the coldness of her voice a strange sense of pride. I ask her if she knows that the Allies had given Himmler the first place on the list of war criminals, and she answers me drily: ‘My husband? How could that be when the Führer was Hitler?’
Q. Did you see much of your husband before the war?

Q. Not very often?
A. No, not very often.
Q. How did you get along with him?
A. Must I answer that question?
Q. Well, why not.
A. (No response)
Q. This is entirely confidential. Nobody is going to read it except myself.
A. Well I think that the Americans and the British know just as well as I do that my husband was not faithful to me.
