Himmler: Germany Withstands Allied Bombings Because of Eliminating Jews

Heinrich Himmler and Rudolf Höss, commandant of Auschwitz

In Sonthofen, Heinrich Himmler delivers a speech to a group of Nazi German generals that Germany has only been able to withstand the Allied bombings because of Nazis' success in eliminating the Jews.

Himmler explains:

"The Jewish question has been solved within Germany itself and in general within the countries occupied by Germany. [...]

You can understand how difficult it was for me to carry out this military order which I was given and which I implemented out of a sense of obedience and absolute conviction. If you say: 'we can understand as far as the men are concerned but not about the children', then I must remind you of what I said at the beginning. [...]

In my view, we as Germans, however deeply we may feel in our hearts, are not entitled to allow a generation of avengers filled with hatred to grow up with whom our children and grandchildren will have to deal because we, too weak and cowardly, left it to them."
