Heinrich Luitpold Himmler, 7 October 1900 – 23 May 1945) was Reichsführer of the Schutzstaffel (Protection Squadron SS) and a leading member of the Nazi Party (NSDAP) of Germany. Himmler was one of the most powerful men in Nazi Germany and one of the people most directly responsible for the Holocaust. As a member of a reserve battalion during World War I, Himmler did not see active service. He studied agronomy in university, and joined the Nazi Party in 1923 and the SS in 1925. In 1929, he was appointed Reichsführer-SS by Hitler. Over the next 16 years, he developed the SS from a mere 290-man battalion into a million-strong paramilitary group, and, following Hitler's orders, set up and controlled the Nazi concentration camps. He was known to have good organisational skills and for selecting highly competent subordinates, such as Reinhard Heydrich in 1931. From 1943 onwards, he was both Chief of German Police and Minister of the Interior, overseeing all internal and external police and security forces, including the Gestapo (Secret State Police). Himmler had a lifelong interest in occultism, interpreting Germanic neopaganand Völkisch beliefs to promote the racial policy of Nazi Germany, and incorporating esoteric symbolism and rituals into the SS.

1. The outside of the cells of “politically valuable” or higher up prisoners. These guys didn’t always have to labour and were fed much better than the other prisoners do that when the media saw them at their hypothetical future trials, they’d look in good condition
2. The inside of a solitary confinement cell. The windows would be boarded up and the prisoner would live in almost complete darkness for days or even months.
3. A monument commemorating the evacuation marches of prisoners from the Dachau Concentration Camp
4. “Never Again”
5. The original lockers used by prisoners
6. Don’t be fooled into thinking this photo is boring. This is the inside of the gas chamber. The lights are from the drop shoots where lethal chemical gases could be inserted. Also, this gas chamber was disguised as a decontamination shower, so prisoners might not even know what was about to happen to them
7. The original oven for cremating the dead. Could fit two at a time. Shortly after it became operational the SS realized it wasn’t functional enough, so...
8. They built a new one (same building as the gas chamber). This crematorium could dispose of about 20 bodies at a time. About four per oven

•Pictured Above: is ‘Reichsparteitag der Freiheit’ 1935- Adolf Hitler gives his speech to the NSDAP on the culture conference in the Nazi Opera House.

This sure looks like an opera performance, with Hitler commandeering a host of musicians.

A German soldier on a motorcycle is given an alcoholic drink by Polish civilians. Poland, September of 1939. When Germany invaded Poland in the summer of 1939 with the Soviet Union, Poland had a large German minority population, this gave Hitler an incentive to take it over and use it for lebensraum (living space) to be used as a space for the potential future of the Third Reich. #wwii #ww2daily #ww2 #ww2dailyphotography #dailyhistory #dailyhistorypost

The German 6. Infanterie Division (6th Infantry Division) was formed in 1921 with its Infantry Regiments being used to form other units, but retained its 18th Infantry Regiment. In 1934 the division used the codename Infanterieführer V (Infantry Leader 5), and was composed mainly of Westphalians, with some East Prussians and Rhinelanders. The 6. Infanterie Division was assigned to the Saar sector when the Invasion of Poland took place in 1939, but would fight well during the Battle of France gaining a reputation as an effective fighting unit. It remained in France on occupation duty until March 1941 when it was sent to East Prussia in preparation of Operation Barbarossa. Assigned to Army Group Center the division took part in the Drive on Moscow, and even managed to cross the Volga River at Kalinin north of Moscow in November. The division held the city until January of 1942 when it was forced back due to the Soviet Winter Counter-Offensive. The 6. Infanterie Division fought in the Rzhev Salient until March 1943 when it and a dozen other divisions retreated to shorten the front lines. In July 1943 the division took part in the Battle of Kursk and Orel before going on the defensive. In July 1944 the division surrendered with the rest of the surrounded XXXV Korps (35th Corps) at Mogilev. However enough of the division had escaped the encirclement or returned wounded to form a new 6. Infanterie Division. With roughly 1,100 veterans of the old 6. Infanterie Division and absorbing the 552. Grenadier Division they combined to form the 6. Volksgrenadier Division in October 1944. The new division, which was severely understrength, was sent back to the eastern front and took part in the defensive battles of Poland at Warsaw and Radom in late 1944 before being surrounded in January 1945 and all but destroyed during the Soviet Vistula-Oder Offensive. The 6. Infanterie Division was reformed again in March 1945, this time using the Shadow Infanterie Division Dresden, which consisted of 4 Infantry Battalions, an Artillery Battalion and an Engineer Company.

You may be familiar with the concept of "victory gardens". These were community gardens that popped up all over Britain during the First and Second World Wars. The idea was to supplant the country's food production which was diminished due to men being at war and not on the farms.
.
Along with the Victory gardens there were also Victory shops where clothing and other items were collected and delivered to soldiers at the front and also provided to families whose husbands were maimed or killed in action.
.
Because of Canada's historically close ties to Britain at that time which involved sending our own men to fight as allies in these wars Victory gardens and Victory shops existed here as well. Maybe they existed in the USA also? I'm not sure.
.
The photo above shows one of the Victory shops that still exists here in North Bay, Canada.
.
It is more like a thrift store now. 'Mostly women's clothing, baby blankets, tea cups, decorative plates and the like.
.
I have digitally "aged" the photo to make it look like it was photographed in the 1940s.

Today wasn’t about a fairy tale castle like yesterday. Today was about WWII and specifically, Dachau. We learned about the horrific things that happened here, at the first concentration camp to open (also, the only one to remain open the full 12 years of the regime), its liberation and aftermath for those who survived.
In this picture, the statue, which includes the concrete fence posts leading to it, represents the many bodies, starving, living tangled together, behind an unescaped fence. .
