Himmler / 'Decent One: the most haunting documentary'

Postby Hannover » 5 years 4 months ago (Fri Oct 03, 2014 12:54 pm)

(One again, in the wake of racist Israeli genocidal mass murders of Palestinians we see another attempt at deflection and subject changing.)

Apparently the author doesn't get out very much and certainly hasn't seen many documentaries. Note that the word "documentary" used here in a way to somehow make it seem factual, clearly there this truly factual information within this review, but the portrayal of Heinrich Himmler spun by the author and the filmmaker is embarrassingly not factual. IOW, more propaganda from those who benefit from it.

We've seen this a number of times, real facts are brought forward which show the highest ranking Germans to be kind, family loving, reasonable men. The dissonance this creates for the marketers of the false 'holocaust' storyline requires them to spin the facts that are presented. We get Hanah Arendt and her very banal & desperate “the banality of evil" canard, in spite of the evidence that is presented about the leadership of the NSDAP which demonstrates that these men were certainly not "evil". Of course there is most importantly the utter debunking of the '6M & gas chambers'.

This review is littered with the usual false premises and easily refuted 'facts'. This pretty much summarizes the author's agenda:
Lapa forces us to confront apparently incompatible truths: Himmler was a monstrous war criminal, one of history’s very worst, and he was also an apparently normal person who somehow screwed himself up to do these terrible things and suffered for it. I’m not saying he suffered enough, God knows, or that his suffering makes up for anything.
He says so with not the least amount of proof. In fact his empty claims have been thoroughly debunked by recent research and this forum.

Also observe that there is no mention of Himmler being murdered to prevent him from testifying at Nuremberg. Read on.

Heinrich Himmler, family man: Why “The Decent One” is the most haunting documentary I’ve ever seen
A devastating doc drawn from a trove of private papers reveals the Nazi war criminal as husband and dad

Much of the history of human thought has revolved around our efforts to understand the nature of evil, which have never yielded anything like a satisfactory result. We are fascinated by serial killers and murderous dictators, torn between the obvious fact that they are human beings like ourselves and the conviction that in some fundamental way they must be different. Fictional embodiments of evil, like J.R.R. Tolkien’s Sauron or J.K. Rowling’s Lord Voldemort, are essentially reassuring because they are nothing except evil; both are built on the Satanic pattern, meaning they were once pure, but have left their uncorrupted selves far behind. Even the perversely noble Satan of “Paradise Lost,” after nine days of torture by fire, knows only one purpose: “immortal hate” and “eternal War irreconcileable” against the power of heaven.

Set against this conception of inhuman monstrosity we have the countervailing evidence, famously marshaled by Hannah Arendt under the controversial term “the banality of evil.” In latter days, many scholars and Holocaust survivors have contended that Arendt misapplied this term to Adolf Eichmann. (Most notably, the late Benjamin Murmelstein, who knew Eichmann well, told “Shoah” director Claude Lanzmann that Eichmann was a sadist and a zealous anti-Semite.) But the dispute over Eichmann’s personality oversimplifies the profound philosophical insight that lies behind Arendt’s phrase, which speaks to the fact that people who do terrible things, and who hold beliefs most of us find noxious and inexplicable, often appear to be entirely normal in other areas of life. Those Technicolor films of Hitler snuggling his beloved German shepherd (shot by Eva Braun) have always struck me as more disturbing than his long, ranting speeches. Der Führer looks like any other high-level functionary of the business or political realms, seeking an outlet for repressed emotion. He doesn’t look good or evil; he looks human.

That brings us, however reluctantly, to the subject of Heinrich Himmler, the focus of Vanessa Lapa’s devastating collage documentary “The Decent One,” and a highly viable candidate for the title of Worst Human Being Ever. As leader of the SS and head of the Gestapo, Himmler almost certainly knew more about the details of the Holocaust than Hitler did. As the private letters and documents that form the principal text of “The Decent One” make clear, he was a true believer in Nazi master-race ideology, who enthusiastically embraced the project of exterminating all the Jews in the Third Reich’s zone of control. Yet any attempt to describe Himmler as a monster founders on the mountain of ordinary domestic details. His letters home to his wife, Marga, are affectionate and playful, laden with the role-playing and in-jokes that are the inner substance of any marriage. Later on, of course, Himmler writes similar letters to the mistress with whom he had two illegitimate children – but old-fashioned bourgeois adultery is the deed of a man, not a monster.

While the cumulative effect of “The Decent One” is difficult to summarize, and some viewers have felt alienated by Lapa’s formal and structural choices, I found this film to be one of the most profoundly disturbing cinematic experiences in a life full of them. It has the slow-building nightmare force of one of Michael Haneke’s films, which have their roots (it hardly needs to be said) in the same 20th-century European darkness. Even those steeped in World War II and Holocaust history will learn things from “The Decent One,” and none of them are likely to make you sleep better at night. Himmler is not made less repulsive in this human-scale portrait; indeed, he seems more despicable than ever. But Lapa constantly confronts us with the fact that we cannot easily thrust him away as a psychotic aberration, not when he seems like such a recognizable type.

Himmler is the guy who more or less successfully compartmentalizes his family life and the unlovely details of a demanding professional career. He reads an adoring letter from his daughter, Gudrun (known as Püppi) – who at one point seems mystified by the fact that her science teacher caught her cheating on a test but did not punish her – and later that day or the next reads a secret memo from an underling discussing technical problems with the “death wagons,” the rolling gas chambers then being used to asphyxiate Jews and Communists along the Eastern Front. (I don’t want to tell you what the memo was about; I wish I didn’t know.) I’m not suggesting that oil-company executives, corporate lobbyists or predatory venture capitalists are guilty of crimes on anywhere near Himmler’s scale, but the psychological mechanism involved is about the same.

“The Decent One” is based on a trove of recently revealed material whose provenance is somewhat mysterious, although as far as I know its authenticity is not in question. Lapa’s film suggests that the Himmler family’s private archive was stolen by American soldiers, and then sold on the black market, after Himmler’s home in Bavaria was seized in the spring of 1945. The collection, which includes Himmler and Marga’s letters, Püppi’s childhood diary, many other documents and numerous family photographs, apparently found its way to Israel and was held there for decades, until Lapa’s father purchased it privately a few years ago. There’s something more than a little unsavory about that history, as if the criminality of the papers’ former owners had leached into them somehow and infected future generations. I suppose it all fits together.

In the early stages of “The Decent One,” which sketch out a brief portrait of Himmler’s unexceptional childhood in a privileged Bavarian Catholic family, Lapa stitches together archival footage from many sources, most of which is simply meant to illustrate provincial German life early in the 20th century. Almost none of this early material directly pertains to Himmler (and she never claims it does), but some viewers may be confused about that. Throughout the film, she often adds an artificial soundtrack – gunshots, children’s cries, the roar of motorcycle engines – to original newsreel or archival footage that is almost certainly silent. I noticed this and wondered about it and then pretty much stopped thinking about it, but on balance it feels like a mistake, an attempt to add aesthetic immediacy to material that does not require it.

Like his future boss, young Heinrich Himmler was nothing like the ideal of blond, muscular Aryan masculinity. Childhood photos reveal a spindly, bespectacled kid, who was often ill and only moderately successful at school. There isn’t enough evidence to know whether he was bullied or abused, but Himmler certainly didn’t have the outdoorsy, athletic boyhood full of hearty camaraderie that he later prescribed for aspiring SS members. He was rejected for fraternity membership at the University of Munich, where Himmler’s diary reveals that the brothers once discussed “homosexuality and the Jewish question,” apparently a first reference to a topic that would dominate his adult life. It’s way too easy to sum up the Nazi leaders as vindictive little men trying to make up for a perceived deficit of masculinity, since that describes many people who don’t become mass murderers. (Or who just don’t get the chance.) At any rate, in Himmler’s case as in Hitler’s, the shoe seems to fit.

As a young man in the mid-1920s, Himmler joined the Nazi Party and also married Marga, a woman seven years older than he who at first seemed the dominant partner. This movie isn’t a history of the former relationship, or of the role Himmler played as Hitler’s most loyal devotee and lieutenant, and you’ll have to get that elsewhere. Marga professes no interest in her husband’s political leanings, at one point needling him: “Why do you go to a Hitler rally when you know what he’s going to say?” She ultimately joined the party too, but with that mixture of loyalty, willful blindness and self-delusion typical of Nazi wives, it’s not clear how much she ever understood about what her husband did, or his enormous personal responsibility for the Final Solution and its implementation. There’s some casual anti-Semitism in their early letters, including unsavory banter about a Jewish moneylender, but nothing remotely unusual for that time and place.

But the self-delusion was not Marga’s alone. Lapa’s title is drawn from an apparently preposterous remark Himmler made, after the war had turned against Germany and the end was in sight: “We can have but one desire as to what is said about us: these German officers, these German soldiers – they were decent.” At another point, he writes fervently about how German troops do not mistreat animals or inflict unnecessary suffering – adding, almost in parenthesis, that this cannot apply to Jews and other “subhumans,” who are below the status of animals. Part of the decency of German soldiers, in Himmler’s view, lay in the fact that many of them suffered psychological damage after committing war crimes. He repeatedly expressed concern about this problem, receiving a secret memo about a prominent general’s mental breakdown and urging that troops on the Eastern front be given free evenings full of drinking, music, theater and wholesome German culture.

There’s no indication that Himmler thought he was being a horrifying hypocrite when he recommended cabaret entertainment as therapy for mass murderers. Indeed, those were the worst parts of the film for me exactly because you can feel Himmler struggling with himself, just a little, and trying to find off the terrible cognitive dissonance of what he has done and what he claims to be. Whether she intends this or not, Lapa forces us to confront apparently incompatible truths: Himmler was a monstrous war criminal, one of history’s very worst, and he was also an apparently normal person who somehow screwed himself up to do these terrible things and suffered for it. I’m not saying he suffered enough, God knows, or that his suffering makes up for anything. But this realization forces us to recognize ourselves in him, just a little, and to recognize the small bad things each of us has done as the seeds of very big bad things.

”The Decent One” is now playing at Film Forum in New York, and opens Oct. 10 at the Music Hall in Los Angeles, with national release to follow.
The 'holocaust' storyline is one of the most easily debunked narratives ever contrived. That is why those who question it are arrested and persecuted. That is why violent, racist, & privileged Jewish supremacists demand censorship. Truth needs no protection from scrutiny.
The tide is turning.

"apparently incompatible truths"

They are incompatible because some are fictional while the other ones are real. Always hard to incorporate real facts in the cartoonish "Holocaust" narrative and the grotesque depiction of Hollywood Nazis. The "Holocaust" has really demolished the credibility of history as a science. The fact that the Katyn distorted narrative was debunked by Soviet leaders, not by historians, speaks volumes...

These things read like a glorified form-letter anymore. He was a "weak" looking child, unheroic in appearance, hardly the embodiment of the Aryan "superman" and on and on. They even work in a suggestion of possible "bullying" to give it a shot of contemporary zest! The rest is, of course, just the usual drivel about ultimate "evil" and similar name-calling intended to stir up the emotions of the easily manipulated.

However, what stood out to me is this passage:

As the private letters and documents that form the principal text of “The Decent One” make clear, he was a true believer in Nazi master-race ideology, who enthusiastically embraced the project of exterminating all the Jews in the Third Reich’s zone of control. Yet any attempt to describe Himmler as a monster founders on the mountain of ordinary domestic details. His letters home to his wife, Marga, are affectionate and playful, laden with the role-playing and in-jokes that are the inner substance of any marriage. Later on, of course, Himmler writes similar letters to the mistress with whom he had two illegitimate children – but old-fashioned bourgeois adultery is the deed of a man, not a monster.


So that's what this is. This is just typical Gatekeeper damage control, believed necessary after the (somewhat) recent release of Himmler's personal letters which - surprise, surprise - revealed NOTHING about mass-murder, maniacal hatred, megalomania, fantastic dreams of global domination, or any of the usual clap-trap ascribed to high level National Socialist figures. Why he was so damned normal he even had a mistress - what a dilemma! :roll:

To borrow a term Hermod used to above - these cartoonish portrayals may play well with the Herd and True-Believers...but they don't add an ounce of credibility to the overriding "holocaust" narrative. On the contrary...

Here's sycophancy dressed up as another review.

The rationally challenged are in full Pavlov's dog, foaming-at-the-mouth, mode over the Himmler letters. The author's indoctrinated little mind manifests crazy and utterly ridiculous scenarios from otherwise ordinary information. Oh what a pleasure it would be to debate a knuckle dragger like Michael Atkinson.

In this example we see the author's mental limitations.
At first, Lapa’s lack of editorializing and her decision to not muddy the Himmler family’s point of view with opposing voices seem troubling. A demented neo-Nazi today could watch The Decent One and find it rousing, powerful and full of truth.
An admission that it is necessary to "muddy" anything dealing with 'the Nazis' in order to shield the reader from historical truth. It's revealing that Atkinson finds truth "troubling". It's predictable behavior from an unthinking hack. He uses the laughable & desperate tactic 'you are a demented neo-Nazi if you think differently than what is demanded of you'.

I noticed that the creepy little author is heavily involved in Hollywood, he knows who butters his bread.
Also, the founder of the site where his piece appeared (inthesetimes.com) is a James Weinstein, with the usual and predictable lack of staff diversity.

Portrait of a Husband, Father and Genocidal Butcher
Heading the SS didn’t excuse Heinrich Himmler from his fatherly duties.

BY Michael Atkinson

How did human juggernauts like Himmler germinate? How did they accommodate the apparent contradictions between devoted family life and genocide? What could their inner life have been like?

The Decent One, Vanessa Lapa’s new doc about über-Nazi Heinrich Himmler, had a simple precipitant: a cache of personal letters, diaries and photos from the Himmler family, long secreted in private collections in Israel and recently brought to light. The compulsion to plumb this material is understandable and lies at the center of Lapa’s film: How did human juggernauts like Himmler germinate? How did they accommodate the apparent contradictions between devoted family life and genocide? What could their inner life have been like?

Himmler, one of the half-dozen most famous and historicized figures of the Third Reich, a man bearing much if not most of the responsibility for killing some 11 million civilians, was also just a fellow, a father and husband, a somewhat dweeby, old-fashioned German citizen with a chip on his shoulder and a penchant for patriotic ire. How could a man so ordinary and even typical have wreaked so much malevolent destruction?

It’s the lingering question of the Nazi legacy, and one that’s probably unanswerable, which doesn’t mean we will ever stop asking. In the Ken Burns mode, The Decent One (the title refers to Himmler’s belief in himself ) uses mountains of archival footage of Himmler and Germany while the letters and diaries are read aloud by actors. The upshot is essentially an oral history of Himmler’s private life. We follow him through childhood and adolescence, when already he’s grousing about Russian “vermin” and how much his classmates dislike him. The more we hear Himmler’s words and see his pouty mug in footage, the more he comes across as the nerdiest of the Nazi über-monsters, and his career as the revenge of the bullied, bespectacled fusspot.

Certainly, he never needed Hitler to instill in him a hatred for Jews and a hankering for racial purity. He rises in the Party, marries, exchanges mushy and even racy letters with his wife, Margarete, and dotes on his daughter, Gudrun, at one point admonishing the 11-year-old, in 1941, to “be kind,” around the same time he was constructing concentration camps. This is exactly the kind of head-slapping disjuncture Lapa focuses on, giving the film a strange, almost dissociative air. The vast amounts of history Himmler was making—running the SS, fighting the war, arranging the Final Solution, plotting to expand Germany’s borders deep into Russia—are left out, because no one wrote in detail about these things in letters. Instead, while millions die off-screen, Papa Himmler canoodles and coos.

At first, Lapa’s lack of editorializing and her decision to not muddy the Himmler family’s point of view with opposing voices seem troubling. A demented neo-Nazi today could watch The Decent One and find it rousing, powerful and full of truth. That is, until somewhere in the middle, when Lapa’s montage juxtapositions begin to saturate with irony. A letter featuring an anti-homosexual diatribe is read over hilarious imagery of shirtless Nazi hunks exercising, while trivial family correspondence circa 1942 gets paired with footage of mass executions and burial. The condemnation is sealed, however subtly, when the Himmler family’s joy over gifts “found” by the Reichsführer-SS is illustrated with film of plundered Jewish suitcases, their owners sent to the camps Himmler himself designed.

In the end, Himmler remains necessarily a mystery. Whether there is much to gain from considering the domestic bliss of genocidal butchers is an open question; all we know for sure is that they find ways to live with themselves, and those ways look from the outside like madness. These two opposing modes of living, at this extreme, don’t match up for us in any coherent way.

Which is just another way of saying that the Nazi project remains, and will likely always be, too huge and too mind-bogglingly awful to “cohere” with what we think of as normal life. But, one wonders, what about at less extreme levels? Should we be having the same decoherence about leaders, such as many U.S. presidents, who have killed merely hundreds of thousands, or tens of thousands, in the process of self-serving aggression?

Michael Atkinson has written or edited many books, including Exile Cinema: Filmmakers at Work Beyond Hollywood (2008) and the mystery novels Hemingway Deadlights (2009) and Hemingway Cutthroat (2010). He blogs at Zero For Conduct.
The 'holocaust' storyline is one of the most easily debunked narratives ever contrived. That is why those who question it are arrested and persecuted. That is why violent, racist, & privileged Jewish supremacists demand censorship. Truth needs no protection from scrutiny.
The tide is turning.

My whole life(and I am middle-aged man) I have heard this supposed conundrum put forth regarding various "Nazi" figures (and to a lesser degree all Germans involved in WW2, for that matter) - the idea that they seemed so...so...normal." How could these people who seem so very, very normal be such murderous monsters," the "historians" and observers wonder.

Yes, how indeed?

Again, we see this theme of how it just seems impossible for such horrors to have actually been carried out - and by such otherwise ordinary, normal people. Indeed - and thinking, rational or non-brainwashed people would find that apparently glaring contradiction very problematic. They would be forced to ask some serious questions. They would be compelled to find out, since this all appears so utterly implausible, if indeed the accusations are even true! People that aren't beholden - by threat or fear of dissension - to a "history" that never seems to add up, that never jibes with the words and thoughts of these men themselves, that rarely departs from the obviously propagandistic and nakedly biased, must surely be skeptical of such inconsistency...of a "history" that is not taught or told, but rigidly, even fanatically enforced!

The "Nazis" are the ultimate boogeymen of the modern day - they are Dracula, werewolves, demons, and hobgoblins all rolled up in one! And sadly, intelligent or at least reasonable people lap it up. Without so much as a moments critical thought, or hesitation, they buy every word of it like children do ghost-stories.

Revisionism truly is a ray of light in an otherwise very dark, dark place.

Re: Himmler / 'Decent One: the most haunting documentary'

I found the documentary "Himmler: The Decent One" online, downloaded it and had it uploaded to YouTube. At the end of it, I corrected several errors (mostly dates). I put these edits right into the documentary [1]. I also completely removed the part about Himmler's alleged suicide and had it replaced with a reference to the work by Bellinger.

Some tacky concentration camp footage was blocked out, but only partly. I retained the subtitles. Who knows who those victims were. They could just as well have been Germans [2].
What's more, seems like whoever edited the flick skipped ahead a lot; used unnecessary or inappropriate imagery/footage which accompanied the alleged letter or diary entry; showed irrelevant footage which was supposed to incriminate Heinrich Himmler and the SS as murderers, when in fact all we saw were five [?] partisans shot. This same footage was played over two or three times, AFAIK.
There is a similar scene in the flick where outraged Latvians take out their revenge on their tormentors [3]. This is put in perspective in such a fashion as if this was a crime, where Heinrich Himmler and his SS were the ones who encouraged it, or took part in it. We do see a few soldiers idle amidst the crowd...Wehrmacht soldiers, as far as I could tell.

1:03:14: reading from a document...Geheime Reichssache..."Todeswagen" are mentioned replete with rolling footage from that Soviet/Polish propaganda flick, that as of now escapes my memory insofar as the title goes. I am sure most of you will have seen it already. I have even seen the film discussed here at this forum. This particular part of the "documentary" is also illustrated by ordinary military vans, the kind which carries men and possibly equipment. The roof was covered with tarpaulin. It looked like a Henschel.

Gas chambers are not mentioned anywhere in the documentary, not even a hint is given about their alleged existence. Well, except for those dubious "gaswagons".

This entire "documentary" could have been done so much better. God knows what they left out or neglected to mention! Rest assured it can only be substantial bits. I am sorry for the poor job in covering it, but I did not have the desire nor time for it. I hope somebody else can pick it to pieces.

I've seen worse documentaries in my life on the same or similar theme. This one is watchable.

At any rate, here it is:



I advise people to download it. Either that, or watch the original. But who knows for how long that one will be up, as well.

My thanks to Mr. Garland for alerting me to it.

Faithfully,
-k0nsl

PS:
I could be wrong, but doesn't it sound like Raul Hilberg is the person interviewing Marga?

No problem, it has just finished uploading 1.2gb. Enjoy - https://archive.org/details/Himmler-The ... sl-Edition . It should be in HD, that is what I downloaded it as and re-uploaded it as. If you download the MP4 it is perfect quality - I Chromecasted it to my TV to test. Playing it through archive.org is small but ok. Just want you to know that k0nsl did a lovely job if you download it.

Re: Himmler / 'Decent One: the most haunting documentary'

Thanks for saving and uploading it. I will upload it to a server which should offer a faster connection than archive.org (I think they rate-limit the speed).

It will be available here when I've upload it:
https://media.k0nsl.org/Documentaries/T ... ent%20One/

This particular site has been severely limited to stop abuse. When there are many people viewing a clip or listening to an audio file it will throw a message about not being available and to check back in a minute. I intend to remove this limitation when I move the site to another server in the near future.

Best wishes,

That's an excellent idea, please do so.


No problem, it has just finished uploading 1.2gb. Enjoy - https://archive.org/details/Himmler-The ... sl-Edition . It should be in HD, that is what I downloaded it as and re-uploaded it as. If you download the MP4 it is perfect quality - I Chromecasted it to my TV to test. Playing it through archive.org is small but ok. Just want you to know that k0nsl did a lovely job if you download it.
