April. 1942. :)
The fuhrer’s late birthday party.
Heinrich Himmler and Rudolf Diels.
Reading about Diels: he was a protégé of Hermann Göring. He soon attracted the attention of political rivals including Heinrich Himmler and Reinhard Heydrich, but with Goring’s aid, he narrowly avoided execution during the Night of the Long Knives. He died in 1957, when his rifle accidentally discharged while he was hunting.
Fascinating, and the picture is great too… Himmler seems to do not like him, same Diels~
I usually try not to reblog things that do not have any Himmler on it but this time tumblr won me. I’ve always been fascinated by this “reconstruction” of history. I’ve seen many more photos like these ones. Not sure if it’s from the same artist, but i find it really inspiring and touching to see this LINK TO THE PAST… don’t you thinks so?
You can see more here @Sergent Larenkov journal.
There is this new forum related to Adolf Hitler and Third Reich, if you’re interested ask me for the URL. I’m sharing it in private~

Heydrich at a birthday party with Hermann Goering.
Himmler’s also there… Could be for Goering’s birthday (Jan, 12) not sure~
"[…] Man is nothing special at all. He is an insignificant part of this earth. If a big thunderstorm comes, he can do nothing about it. He cannot even predict it. He has no idea how a fly is constructed - however unpleasant, it is a miracle - or how a blossom is constructed. He must once again look with deep reverence into this world. Then he will acquire the right sense of proportion about what is above us, about how we are woven into this cycle. […]"
