Summary "Dokumentation über den NS-Reichsinnenminister Heinrich Himmler (1900-1945), die sich auf seinen umfangreichen privaten Nachlass stützt. Aus dem Off vorgetragene Ausschnitte aus seinen Briefen und Tagebüchern ergeben eine Art biografischer Erzählung, während die Aussagen auf der Bildebene anfangs assoziativ, während des Holocaust dann zunehmend kontrastiv illustriert werden. Dabei stehen die banalen Briefinhalte im krassen Gegensatz zur Tätigkeit des "Architekten der Endlösung". Die provozierende Ton-Bild-Montage stellt die Schrecken der Bilder der Biederkeit und Kälte des pflichtbewussten Bürokraten gegenüber, [...]" [].
This biographical documentary, based on a cache of previously undiscovered photos from Himmler's own personal collection, private letters, diary entries and documents (read by actors) that were found in the Himmler family house in 1945, as well as archival footage from key German archives, exposes the inner mind, ideals, plans and secrets of SS commander and architect of the Final Solution, Heinrich Himmler.
